The following may or may not be a fictitious conversation.
Ring (actually ring song).
Yea dad, my roommate and his brother are thinking about going to a ZZ Top concert... in Las Vegas, and I was just wondering what you might think about me going?
How are you going to get there and what do you think it is going to cost?
I was thinking I would drive (background conversation... ticket, hotel, food) and it would probably cost $150.
Are there any concerts closer that you can go to?
I don't know.
Is the $150 in your budget?
Well I was thinking it might be kind of a gift.
Oh, so what about the laptop, having the truck for the summer, not having to work during the summer while I pay for tuition, room and board?
Well if you want to say no, that's OK.
OK, No. How's the truck running anyway...............
