In the past I’ve been making dialogs with random people’s names in order to show what different words or phrases meant. I’ve decided to create a few characters that I will use over and over so that you can get to know these people and their personalities. Let me introduce to you the people so far:
First we have Xander. Xander is a sophomore in an American university. He likes to watch football (American football) on TV on Monday nights. He is in a fraternity and likes to drink beer with his friends. He has an on again/off again girlfriend named Claire. Xanders major in college is liberal Arts because he really doesn’t know what he wants out of life. He just knows one thing right now, he is lovin’ college life!
Next, we have Claire. As you read above, Clair is Xander’s girlfriend. She is very attractive, but shy. Even though she is shy, she is not bookish or too quiet. Once you get to know her, she is quite bubbly. Her major at the university is the MRS. degree. Stay tuned to find out what an ‘MRS.’ degree is.
Xander – Come on sweet cakes, let’s get going!
Claire – Sure, where are we going tonight?
Xander – My frat. is having a party. Let’s go!
Claire – I’d rather have some quiet time with you.
Xander – There will be time for that later. Now, it’s time to get your groove on!

Yvonne – It’s all good! I have a backup drive with all of my files!
(Please note if this really happened in real life, I would not say “It’s all good!” I would be annoyed if my husband really did delete all of my files.)
