<-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Hey Cindy. You look happy. Making plans for the summer vacation?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I'm just glad the semester is finally over.
I just finished my final exams... so I'm taking off for summer vacation tomorrow.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> I wish.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> What do you mean?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> I have to rewrite the lab report for my biology class.
I guess I did it all wrong, so the professor is making me rewrite it before he'll submit a final grade.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I guess that's better than if he just gave you a bad grade on it, right?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I guess so... but I was planning on leaving town tomorrow too. Now I'm not sure I can.
I spoke with the professor and he gave me two options...
I can either turn in the revised report in one week and get my grade
or he said I can wait-you know, take take an incomplete in the class, and submit the paper next semester, in the fall.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> So are you gonna stay around to revise the report?
<-MALE STUDENT:-> I could. I'd get the grade for the class on time and I wouldn't have to think about it anymore.
But there's a family reunion this weekend. I was really looking forward to it.
If I stay around to revise the report, I'll miss the reunion.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, maybe you should take your time and work on the report over the summer.
You can submit it when you return in the fall semester and get your grade then.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> That'd be fine. But what if I need materials from the library to revise the report...
I don't know if I'd be able to find the materials at the library at home.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Hmm.
