Joni: Smell that!

Giuseppe: Smell what?

Joni: Smell that fresh air. Arenít you glad I got you to help me plant this garden? Weíre going to have so much fun today.

Giuseppe: Uh huh. Iím glad to help, but I donít exactly have a green thumb.

Joni: Thatís okay. As long as you can tell a shovel from a lawn mower, youíll be fine. Letís start by moving these pots next to the bushes.

Giuseppe: Okay, your wish is my command.

Joni: Oh, this bag of fertilizer is so heavy.

Giuseppe: Let me get that.

Joni: Thanks. I didnít know we had so many large bags of seeds, too.

Giuseppe: Do you want me to help you with those?

Joni: Thanks a lot. Iíll also need someone to help me hoe this soil.

Giuseppe: I guess I could do that.

Joni: And how am I going to pull all of these weeds?

Giuseppe: Honestly, I think we need reinforcements.

Joni: Good idea. You start working and Iíll go see if I can round up more help. [She leaves.]

Giuseppe: I start working while she leaves? Hmm...I think she just pulled a fast one on me.
