“Margaret! I got the tickets. I had to wait in a mile long queue for about an hour! We are going to see them live on stage. A first night performance of the musical evening, featuring the talents of our favourite, Andre Rieu.”

“I have ordered our car for 5pm, that will give us time for a cocktail before the performance begins.”
