- OK. And whose bags are these? These huge ones. Do you mean these are yours? Are you going on a studentsí archaeological expedition in Greece with all this stuff?

- Essential things ? letís see Ö Whatís in here ? An iron, a portable TV set, a dozen different lotions and shampoos, three pairs of high heels, lots of dressesÖ. And why have you packed two umbrellas, may I ask? In case it rains twice ?

- In case one gets broken or something. Donít make me nervous before the flight, will you?

- All right, take everything you want if you feel happier with all these useless things. And, by the way, where is your ticket, passport, and insurance?
