Barbara: Hi, June. I haven’t seen you in ages.
June: Barbara, hi, how’s it going? I have to pick up some cough medicine for my husband.
Barbara: How about this one here? It’ll help him sleep.
June: Let me see. $12.29?! What a rip-off!
Barbara: This one is cherry flavored and won’t cause drowsiness.
June: I’ll take that. And I need to get some aspirin, too.
Barbara: I have to get this prescription for my son. He has a cold as well.
June: I’m sorry to hear that. Would you like to get some coffee afterwards and catch up on things?
Barbara: I’d love to, but I promised my son I’d be home right away.
June: Well, maybe some other time. I’ll give you a call.
Barbara: Yes, please do. Bye. And give my best to your husband.
June: I will. Catch you later!

Barbara: Excuse me, sir, I have a prescription to fill.
Pharmacist: Would you prefer tablets or liquid form?
Barbara: Tablets, please.
Pharmacist: Here you go. Take them three times a day right after meals.
Barbara: Thanks a lot.
Pharmacist: And remember, there’s a refill on this prescription.
