Ideas for Using The Weeks in Conversation
You might not realize it, but you're probably saying stuff like "this week" or "last week" all the time in your everyday conversations with even the coolest interlocutors.
Why not really add to the conversation by referring to the weeks by name? Try it! You might like it and if not, well, stop doing it.
Here are some fake dialogues demonstrating how handy the Weeks can be.
1. Margaret and Sally eat lunch together every Tuesday. One Tuesday, Sally cannot make it.
Margaret: Are we still on for tomorrow?
Sally: No, Margaret… I have a dentist appointment. But I’ll see you for lunch in Elagon!
Later, in Elagon…
Sally: So how was your Dyamid? Omg I didn’t talk to you all week!
2. Pete really likes an article in a certain New Yorker. He feels like Brad would like this same article. He sees Brad.
Pete: Brad, did you read the story about plant behavior in the New Yorker?
Brad: No, I don’t think so. Which issue was it in?
Pete: I think it was in the Klistarole issue.
Brad: Oh, that makes sense. Klistarole's the week I was in Jamaica. I'll have to find a copy of that.
3. Margie is on birth control. She takes the pill for three weeks and then for one week each month, she takes a sugar pill. One day she goes on vacation and gets confused.
She says to herself: Wait. I took the pill Dyamid, Elagon, and Platrok. So in Woowyn I guess I take the sugar thing. Problem solved.
4. Dina and Don meet in Pember of 2009. They fall in love. Later they break up. In Pember of 2011, Dina thinks: Pember’s when I met Don. She is sad; OR
They are still together, and Pember is their anniversary. Either way, they remember Pember.
5. Lucy takes a writing workshop. Her group meets every Thursday night. Right after their Pomimp session, Lucy loses Max's story, or a dog eats it. In Waypor, she thinks of a solution.
Lucy: Hey, do you happen to have an extra copy of that story you brought in last time?
Max: Sure, do you mean the one we talked about in Pomimp or the one from Isternook?
Lucy: Pomimp. I still have your story from Isternook. I really like it.
Max: You do?......
6. Amber works at a public university. Her childhood friend Katie works at a grammar school in their home town. They really want to take a trip together, but they don't know if their schools have spring break at the same time! They have a conversation like this:
Amber: Hey Katie, when do you guys have spring break?
Katie: I think it's in Brackipper this year.
Amber: Oh, darn. Swamptown gave us *Pinship* off.
Katie: There's always summer.
