Liset: I should never have gotten on this boat. We’re going to sink. I know it!

Mark: Calm down. The water is a little rough today, but there’s nothing to worry about. You have your life jacket on, right?

Liset: Oh my God, water is splashing into the boat. We need to start bailing right now!

Mark: Don’t be ridiculous. That’s just a little sea spray. Sit down and relax.

Liset: Look out! There’s another boat over there!

Mark: It’s just passing by. We might feel its wake, but we’re not going to capsize. I promise you that.

Liset: How long do you think we can survive adrift on the water?

Mark: We are not going to sink. I’m telling you.

Liset: I wonder how long we’ll be marooned on an island. I hope to see my family again someday.

Mark: All right, we’re return to the shore. It’s clear that you’re not enjoying this.

Liset: I didn’t know we’d be sailing in the middle of a squall.

Mark: There’s a gentle breeze today, that’s all. I’m sorry I didn’t wait for a completely calm day to take you out on your first boat ride.

Liset: My first and last!
