Inviting to a party / Приглашение на вечеринку

Gretchen: Good morning, Dr. Hanson. May I come in?

Dr. Hanson: Good morning, Gretchen. Of course. How can I be of help?

Gretchen: Well, it’s not about school, Dr.Hanson. It’s just that Michael and I want to have a few people over the dinner party to celebrate finishing my dissertation. And we’d like to invite you. Would you be able to come the weekend after next on Saturday?

Dr. Hanson: I’d be delighted to, Gretchen. Saturday, did you say?

Gretchen: If that’s all right for you and Mrs. Hanson.

Dr. Hanson: I have to check with Elizabeth, but I’m pretty sure it will be alright.

Gretchen: If you could come around 6.30 or 7 o’clock, that would give us time to chat a while.

Dr. Hanson: That sounds fine. We’ll be there around 7.

Gretchen: That’ll be great. I’m so pleased that you and Mrs. Hanson will be able to make it.

Dr. Hanson: Well, it should be fun. And you deserve it after all that hard work. Let’s say. Gretchen, will I have to start calling you Dr. Schubert now?

Gretchen: Of course not, Dr. Hanson.

Dr. Hanson: Mmm, well then can you extricate by calling me Henry?

Gretchen: Of course, Dr… I mean, Henry.

Dr. Hanson: Right.

Gretchen: It’ll take some time to get used to.
