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.
Paul: Really?
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?
Paul: OK.
Ms. Novak: Bye-bye.
