    <-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Hey Jill, what's on your mind?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I'm trying to decide what to do about the paper for my history class.
    A big part of the assignment is working with original historical documents.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Originals...?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, you know our library has all kinds of records and books dating back hundreds of years.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Amazing. So is there a problem?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Uh-huh, the librarian just told me that the documents I was planning to use aren't available right now.
    They're old newspapers, and they were in pretty bad shape, so the library sent them out for repairs, like,
    restoration work.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> So you can't use them?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> No,they say they won't be available for at least another two weeks. So I can't work on my paper.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, can you change what you're writing about...
    you 'know, choose a topic that doesn't involve those documents?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> I could...
    there are plenty of historical topics. Then I could get really working on the paper right awa...
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> but, what?...
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> well I've already done a bunch of research on my current topic.
    I've collected a lot of information, and I wouldn't be able to use any of it if I changed my topic.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, when did you say the documents... the old newspapers... will be available?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> The librarian said two weeks.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> So you could just postpone working on the paper... wait until they're available...
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Possibly. Unfortunately that would mean doing major work on my paper in the last week of the school term when I'll be working on a lot of other things.
    If I change the topic, I can really work on the paper right away.
