Paul: Hey, look. I’m an artist. Here’s my latest work. It’s called Office Walls. I was
inspired by looking at the walls of the office.
Ms. Novak: Are you a photographer?
Paul: Yes, well, no, I . . . I take a lot of pictures.
Ms. Novak: Hmmm. I’m not so crazy about that one, but I do like what you’ve
done here. I’m very moved by it, actually. It’s a fascinating mixture of Eastern
and Western traditions. You have talent.
Paul: I do?
Ms. Novak: I think I could sell this.
Ms. Novak: It’s very good.
Paul: I’m crazy about photography.
Ms. Novak: Do you have any more of your work here?
Paul: Uh, no.
Ms. Novak: Here’s my card. Why don’t you bring me some pieces on Friday?
Ms. Novak: Bye-bye.
Cheryl: So . . . where are we going to put this thing?
Paul: Hang it by my desk.
Paul: Yeah. As an artist, I’m really starting to like it. As a matter of fact, I think it’s...
one of the most interesting works I’ve ever seen.
