Mike: Hey April, where are you?
April: I'm just in the living room babe, come in here.
Mike: Hi hun, how was the game today?
April: We won! It was our first win this year.
Mike: Congrats! Did you score any goals?
April: I had a hand in helping, but ①I sort of took a spill, so I had to sit out the last half.
Mike: That sucks, what happened? Are you okay?
April: I'm fine now—just a little embarrassed. ②I was dumb as a rock and forgot to 1)lace my skates up properly. They came undone and I tripped over them.
Mike:Oh 2)jeeze babe, you've got to be more careful.
April: Thanks, Dad.
Mike: ③I deserve that. Sorry.
April: Sigh, no, you're right. I do need to be more careful. And I should know better—safety is the first thing we teach at the climbing gym.
Mike: That's because it's the most important. ④But I'm preaching to the choir here.
April: Yeah, and ⑤people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones! I seem to remember a certain young man who didn't want to wear his helmet while snowboarding last year.
Mike: And I've got the scar to prove it. Man, you really gave me hell for that one.
April: 3)Darn straight—⑥you scared the daylights out of me. You could have killed yourself.
Mike: Lesson learned, though. Winter sports are a lot more dangerous than summer sports.
April: You just can't have a 4)devil-may-care attitude with winter sports. There are so many things to consider—snow, ice, 5)slippage, temperature.
Mike: Not to mention the fact that some of the sports are straight up risky. You're not exactly going slow when you're 6)hurtling down a hill on skis.
April: Yeah, ⑦you really need to be on the ball when it comes to winter activities. Speaking of which, our results came back for that first aid training course. We passed!
Mike: That's awesome! Let's celebrate tonight. How about we meet up with Chris and Steph for dinner?
April: ⑧I like where your head's at. I'll give them a call.
