Hello, how are you today?

It's good to see you. How long has it been since we last saw each other?

Yes, that's right. So, since we last talked, I've got a new job and moved into a new apartment. What about you? What have you done since we last talked?

Ah, that's interesting. I've been working hard on a project at work lately. What have you been doing lately?

If I had more free time, I'd play some golf. What about you?

I wish I could remember the name of your friend. You know the tall one with dark hair. Are you still hanging out together?

I used to hang out with my friends a lot more. Unfortunately, I don't have much time these days. What did you use to do that you don't do much anymore?

I got a new job, and everything changed. What did you do to change things?

Oh well, I'm sure things will be different soon. I know things will change for the better when I get married! Will things change for you soon? If so, how will they change?

Oh, look at the time! I'm meeting with some colleagues this afternoon. What are you doing?
