<-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> How's it going, Marie? Weren't you away this past weekend?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I flew out to see my family in Boston for the weekend. Just got back from the airport, actually.
What a mess...my flight was delayed several hours 'cause of bad weather.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, there was that big storm out east, huh.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Right. So I was at the airport like all night waiting for my flight to leave.
I was supposed to arrive back on campus last night,
but instead I got in early this morning.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> You must be exhausted.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I am. I hardly got any sleep¡ªjust a short nap on the plane.
And I'm supposed to, I can't believe it,
I'm supposed to give a presentation in my history class today,
an hour from now.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> What kind of presentation?
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> It's a ten-minute presentation on a paper I wrote,
and then there's an answer...a question-and-answer session afterward...
where the professor and other students ask me questions about my history paper and stuff.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, I bet if you told your professor what happened,
how the flight was delayed and you didn't get any sleep...
I bet the professor would let you do the presentation on a different day.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, she'd probably let me reschedule.
I just don't know if I want to put it off...
I've got a lot of other stuff coming up,
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Oh.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I could just give the presentation today. I mean, I did prepare for it a lot last week.
So I don't know,
maybe I should just grab a cup of coffee or something and go through with it.
<-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, if you feel OK with that.
<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, I'm definitely tired...
I wouldn’t be as quick or as sharp as I normally am,
but I've got an hour to go over my notes. And the coffee should help wake me up.
