sleeping in

Hi pals,
from today, I will put some conversations in adition to the Audio files in web log
the conversations are for intermediate and upperintermediate students.



It would seem that the most natural thing to do would be to wake up at sunrise and go to bed at sunset. But if that’s the case, why does it feel so good to sleep through the entire morning?

Teenagers are famous for their love of sleeping in. But some adults really like to spend the morning in bed as well. Among them are Jason and Amanda.


Amanda: Do you know what my most favorite thing to do in this world is?

Jason:  What?

Amanda:  Just guess. C’mon, you know me.

Jason:  Uh, frisbee golf.

Amanda:  Close. Sleeping in. Like high school-style. Like 12-plus hours.

Jason:  Oh yeah!

Amanda:  When was the last time you got to do that?

Jason:  Today. I set my own hours. I woke up at noon today.

Amanda:  You did not wake up at noon today.

Jason:  I wake up at noon every day.

Amanda:  No, you don’t!

Jason:  Yeah, I do!

Amanda:  How do you hold down a real job?

Jason:  I work from about 1pm to 10pm, and then I go out until 2am and then I wake up at noon.

Amanda:  Do you kinda feel like a vampire a little bit?

Jason:  A little bit.

Amanda:  When you wake up in the morning, it’s not even morning. People are going out for lunch.

Jason:  Totally. But I also have the jump on people because I can send an email at two in the morning and everyone will get it at seven in the morning when they get up so it seems like I’m on top of it.

Amanda:  So you’re kind of proactive, ahead of the game, or you’re lazy, right?

Jason:  I do feel lazy. Whenever you get to sleep in like you do, do you feel like it’s…I don’t know, do you feel like you’ve done something bad, like a little bit of guilt?

Amanda:  Yes! On the weekends I sleep in to 11 and I feel totally guilty because life’s going on without me. Breakfast, cleaning the house, people are out doing stuff and I’m in bed with the shades down. And then I wake up kind of groggy, you know? And you look at the clock and you take a shower and it’s like 2, right?

Jason:  I think about it. I think about making the switch to a normal lifestyle, but every time I get into that new groove, something knocks me out of it, like a good show I can’t resist going to on a Wednesday and then next thing you know, sleeping till noon again.

Amanda:  Well, you’re lucky you don’t have a 9-5 job then.

Jason:  I know.

Amanda:  Because that’s not gonna work.

Jason:  I know. It’s like one of my main incentives to not get a real 9-5.

Amanda:  Nice.
