A: Hey, John. What’s up? You look so pale!
B: My runny nose is killing me. I’vesuffered from it for nearly a week. And I can’t barely sleep well.
A: Why don’t you go see a doctor?
B: um…because I am afraid of needles.
A: Come on. You can’t ignore your illness simply because of that. After all, the doctor may not prescribe an injection if you weren’t very sick.
B: All right. I’ll go see a doctor immediately.
A: Take care.
A: Hi, May.
B: Hi, Rita. How have you been recently?
A: So-so. In fact, I’ve just recovered from a cold for nearly a week.
B: Wow, thank God you’ve recovered. The flu is pretty prevailing now during this season. You should really take good care of yourself in order not to catch a cold again.
A: Thanks. I will. Got to buy some grocery now. Talk to you later. Bye.
