Play / pause
TOMMY: "Good afternoon, Mrs. Bailey."
MRS. BAILEY: "Hello Tommy. Why do you look so sad?"
TOMMY: "I need to find a part-time job this summer. I want to buy a new guitar, but I don't have enough money."
MRS. BAILEY: "Well, can you do yard work?"
TOMMY: "Yes! I do yard work for our house all the time. What do you need done?"
MRS. BAILEY: "How about mowing and watering the lawn?"
TOMMY: "I can do both of those things."
MRS. BAILEY: "Bill and I are getting too old to do it. Our son used to take care of our yard, but he moved to another state."
TOMMY: "I see."
MRS. BAILEY: "When can you start?"
TOMMY: "I can start right now!"
MRS. BAILEY: "That would be wonderful. The grass is growing really high."
