What a Bright Idea!
Kathy Mannings and Evan Whiting are discussing graduation plans.
K:Evan, I can't believe we're finally going to graduate from graduate school.
E:Me neither. It's been a long six years.
K:Are you going to work right after we graduate?
E:I should, but I'd like to travel around a bit before settling down. At least for the summer.
K:Me too. Dad said he'd approve of my going to Europe. He has some relatives there that I could visit.
E:Really? I have relatives in Europe, too. In fact, I was thinking of going there, too!
K:What a coincidence! Where are your relatives?
E:In the Netherlands. They're on my mother's side.
K:My dad's relatives are in Sweden.
E:Those would be great countries to visit, wouldn't they?
K:I'll say. Say, you don't suppose we could travel to Europe together after graduation, do you?
E:Kathy, what a bright idea!
