Peter: Hi, it's Anna, isn't it?
Anna: Hey, Peter. How are you? I haven't seen you for ages!
Peter: Yeah, I think it was four years ago at Cathy's graduation party. Do you still see her?
Anna: I saw her last week in fact. She's just had a baby.
Peter: Oh wow! I can't believe that - Cathy, a mother!
Anna: I can't believe how different you look.
Peter: Do you think so?
Anna: Yeah! You've changed your hairstyle completely. You used to have really long hair, didn't you?
Peter: Yeah, I got tired of washing and brushing it five times a day!
Anna: And of course, you used to have a beard. You've shaved that off too.
Peter: Hey, that's true. I haven't had a beard for at least three years now.
Anna: And where are your glasses? You've stopped wearing your glasses with the red frames.
Peter: Oh, they were terrible. I can't believe you can still remember them! I wear contact lenses now.
Anna: They were so "you", those glasses. So, what else is different with you?
Peter: Hmm, well I've changed my job too. You remember I used to work in the book store?
Peter: Well, I have another job now and it's a lot better.
Anna: What do you do now?
Peter: I work for a computer software company in the city. The pay is great and the job is pretty interesting too.
Anna: That sounds terrific. What about Benji?
Peter: Benji? Who's he?
Anna: Don't tell me you've forgotten about that old Volkswagen you used to drive around in!
Peter: Benji!!!! Wow...I can't believe you remembered! I've bought a new car now and it doesn't have a name. So what about you? What's changes in your life since we last saw each other.
Anna: Very little actually. I've moved into a new apartment on the other side of town. That place I used to live in was just too small and cramped for me.
Peter: But you lived so close to your job.
Anna: Yeah, well I've changed my job too, just like you. Now, I work for my father in the sales department so I'm pretty close to the office.
Peter: Look, I've got to hurry off now but it's been great talking to you. What do you say, should we meet up for dinner or a drink this week and catch up on old times?
Anna: Absolutely! Here's my home number. You can reach me any time after 7.
Peter: Ok, I'll call in a day or two and we'll get something together. Bye for now, Anna.
Anna: Bye Peter.
