**************

Marta: Today we’re talking about to catch.

Marta: Cindy, hurry up! Get in here! We haven’t recorded in a long time and we’ve got a lot to catch up on!

Cindy: True. It’s been a while. We have a lot to catch up on. That means we have a lot to talk about, to become up-to-date on current events.

Marta: or for example: to catch up on work projects…

Cindy: …and to catch up on gossip! (laughs)

Marta: Exactly! (laughs)

Cindy: BUT there will be no catching up without a cup of coffee first!

Marta: Good idea.

Cindy: I’ll get the coffee and I’ll be right back…(footsteps)

Marta: (humming a song)

Cindy: Here’s your coffee. Hey, what’s that song you’re humming? Is that from your new album? I love it! It’s really catchy!

Marta: Yeah, it’s called “Back in the Saddle” and yes, it will be on the new album. What do you mean by ’really catchy’’?

Cindy: That means it’s instantly likeable! It makes me want to sing along with you! It’s a catchy tune.

Marta: Well, thank you. I’m very excited about this album. Just please don’t start singing Cindy, because you’ll break the microphone & we still have an entire podcast to record!

Cindy: It’s absolutely true. So, let’s catch up. What’s new in your life?

Marta: Well, I’ve been to “Music City” USA… Nashville, Tennessee baby!!

Cindy: That must have been amazing! Did you catch some great performances? That means ‘’did you see some great performances?’’

Marta: Actually, we didn’t catch anyone because we were so busy PLAYING (music)!

Cindy: I’m glad you had the chance to play Nashville. You deserve it. I bet you can’t wait to catch the next plane back to Tennessee?

Marta: And I’m happy to say that this April I will be on the next plane back to Tennessee!

Cindy: That’s wonderful! Oh, and that reminds me I want to catch the 5 o’clock train back to Bologna tonight.

Marta: Are you going to catch up with your husband after work?

Cindy: First, I want to do a little Christmas shopping. I’ll catch up with my husband for dinner later on.

Marta: It’s very cold & rainy tonight. Dress warmly or you’ll catch a terrible cold!

Cindy: Oh I know! I caught a cold last week. It was awful!

Marta: Uh Cindy, take your microphone and go stand over there. I don’t want to catch your germs.

(sound of disinfectant spraying)

Cindy: Wait! What are you doing? I’m not sick anymore! Stop spraying me with disinfectant!

Marta: Keep your germs on that side of the room!

Cindy: Don’t worry, it’s not catchy. My cold is long gone and I’m no longer contagious. You’re safe! (laughs)

Marta: Ok, but one single cough and you can catch the early train back to Bologna! (sprays disinfectant)

Cindy: Stop it! Oh, look outside! The weather is getting worse! (sound of rain) I may have to catch the early train if I want to get some shopping done tonight. (thunder & lightning)

Marta: Why do you need to go shopping tonight? (thunder) Go tomorrow, maybe it will be sunny?

Cindy: No, I REALLY need to catch that 5 o’clock tonight.

Marta: Are you buying more shoes?

Cindy: (silence)

Marta: I knew it.

Cindy: Ok, Ok, listen to me! Huge clearance sale. Leather boots. Name brands. Everything in the store- 75% off the original price.

Marta: We need to catch that early train!
