Monica: Wow, check you out! When did you buy a new car?
Kevin: This isn’t just any new car. It’s a Ferrari.[audio:http://libsyn.com/media/eslpod/ESLPod758.mp3|titles=ESL Podcast – Showing Off a New Purchase]
Monica: I can see that. It must have set you back a few.
Kevin: Yeah, but it was worth it. You should see the looks I get riding around in this baby. My brother is green with envy.
Monica: Then you’ve been showing it off around town.
Kevin: No, I’ve just been showing it off to a few friends and family members. There’s no sense owning a fine machine like this and not bragging a little, right?
Monica: Especially since your brother has been gloating about his new boat, you mean.
Kevin: There is that. I don’t want to toot my own horn, but I think a new Ferrari trumps a measly new boat, don’t you?
Monica: Do you and your brother always whip it out like this?
Kevin: Like what? I’m just sharing my new toy with my brother. I’m sure he’s just as happy for me as I was for him when he bought his new boat.
Monica: Truer words were never spoken.
