- Good morning Darling, how are you feeling today?

- Thanks, I'm feeling OK, thanks. What's that sound? Are our neighbours testing their new power tools?

- No, this time it's not our neighbours but our kids.

- Our kids? What are they doing?

- Well, you'll be surprised -- they are listening to the CD you bought them for Christmas.

- Ah, I see. But why aren't they using their headphones?

- Headphones? Do they have headphones?

- Yes, of course they do. They are just not using them to provoke us.

- Oh, come on. Don't say that. They probably think we should be listening to their music, too.

- Right. I should be listening to Techno songs at 9 o'clock on a Sunday morning. You must be kidding!

- 9 o'clock? It's 10:30, the sun is shining and your parents are coming in two hours. How about getting ready for them?

- Why are my parents visiting us today? Did you tell them about my promotion?

- Well, how did you think I could hide such news from them? Of course I told your mother about your success. We're are so proud of you!

- Thanks a lot. Maybe, today you are cooking lunch for a change?

- That won't be necessary I suppose. Our kids are already working hard in the kitchen.

- Is that true? We have wonderful kids, don't we?
