<-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Hey, Carrie, what's the matter?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, you know I'm in the choir, right?
And we have a concert tonight in an hour, just an hour from now?
<-MALE STUDENT:->I know, I'm going... really looking forward to hearing you sing.
What's the trouble?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, we're all supposed to wear white shirts and black pants at the concert-
you know, so we all look the same.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Right...
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, I wore my white shirt to dinner, and I spilled spaghetti sauce all over it.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Oh, no!
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, there's a huge red stain on it-I can't wear it for the concert now!
It's the only white shirt I have, and there's no time to go to the store to buy another one.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Wow. What are you gonna do?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, I just called the choir director... and he's obviously unhappy about all this...
but I told him about another shirt I have...
it's not exactly white, not white like the others, sorta off-white,sorta cream-colored?
And he says it's OK for me to wear it, but....
<-MALE STUDENT:-> But it's not exactly the same color as the others.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Right. I'll feel kinda funny.
Some people in the audience would probably be able to tell.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Hmm. Don't any of the other choir members have an extra white shirt you could borrow?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> No, I've already asked around. But my roommate has one.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Great. Use hers.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, the thing is, she's out of town-
I've tried calling her, but haven't been able to reach her.
She probably wouldn't mind.
But, you know, I've never borrowed any of her stuff before... and I really don't like taking things without asking....
