STEVE: This place serves good breakfasts, don't you think? HOWARD: Yes. But I'm not used to eating American-style breakfast. STEVE: What are you planning to do today? HOWARD: I saw yesterday that they rent windsurfers at the beach. I want to rent one. STEVE: Have you done windsurfing before? HOWARD: No, but it looks fun. I always wanted to try it. STEVE: Can you take a little advice from a friend? HOWARD: Sure. What? STEVE: Don't waste your money. Windsurfing is very hard. And it will be windy today.They will charge you fifty dollars for a half-hour, and you won't be able to windsurf.You will fall and fall and fall. HOWARD: But I always wanted to try it. STEVE: Yes, but it takes a long time to learn.You would spend a thousand dollars to learn it on a rental windsurfer. HOWARD: Well, I will see. How was your day at the office? STEVE: Hectic. It's always hectic. But how was your windsurfing? HOWARD: I tried it for a half-hour.It was interesting, but... well... I couldn't really do it. STEVE: See? I told you. It's very hard. HOWARD: I couldn't even stand on it and hold the sail. I probably fell down fifty times. STEVE: Fifty times? HOWARD: Yes, it was really stupid. STEVE: And how much did it cost to rent it? HOWARD: It was fifty dollars for a half-hour. STEVE: Well, that's not too bad then. HOWARD: What do you mean? It's expensive! STEVE: Yes, but you have to calculate a little.You paid fifty dollars and you fell down fifty times.So you only spent one dollar per fall. That's cheap.
