Svetlana: Tomorrow is the first day of junior high. Are you ready?
Quinn: Sure, it's not that big a deal. I already put some supplies in my new backpack.
Svetlana: Let's see. You have some folders, a three-ring binder, and a pen. Is that all you're bringing to school?
Quinn: I don't have my books yet. I'll get those tomorrow morning. What else do I need? I'm not in the second grade. I don't need things like glue, crayons, and construction paper.
Svetlana: No, but you're missing a lot of stuff. I should know. You have a pen, but no pencils. You have no erasers or highlighters. You have a three-ring binder, but you don't have any ruled paper or a notebook.
Quinn: I don't need all of that stuff on the first day!
Svetlana: You want to be prepared, don't you? Where are your index cards? Don't you have a calculator? You'll need it for your math class.
Quinn: Are you kidding me?! If I carry all of that plus my books, who will carry me to class?
