5: Dorm Friends (Momo and Carson)

W: Ugh, the neighbors have been blasting music for over an hour now! I hate confronting people, but I really wanna get started on this homework. (knocks on door, but no answer) Um, excuse me… Hello? HELLO?

M: (turns music down, opens door) Huh? What’s up?

W: I, uh… Sorry to bother you, but… I’m trying to do some homework, and you’re being kind of loud. Could you turn your music down a little?

M: Oh dang, my bad, dude! Yeah, for sure, I’ll turn it down.

W: Um… OK. Thanks. See you.

M: Hey, wait! Since we’ll be living next to each other for a year, we should probably know each other’s name! I’m Carson-- yeah, (sarcastic) haha, like Carson City, the capital of Nevada. My parents hate me.

W: Oh. I’m Momoko, but you can call me Momo.

M: Right on. Nice to meet you, Momo. So, where are you from, Momo?

W: I’m an exchange student from Japan.

M: Whoa, great!

W: Anyway, I’ve got to get back to my homework now…

M: It’s only the first week of school, how much homework can you have? … Well, see ya around!
