"Lisa! What's going on? How did your last race go?" asked Ming.

"I came in second, but that's okay. Hey, I need Andrea's phone number. Do you have it?" asked Lisa.

"Sure." Ming stopped to take a look at the list of contacts on her phone. "It's 612-555-3462. Do you want me to text you her phone number?"

"Yeah, that would be great." said Lisa. "Listen, I've got to go. Call me later, okay?"

"Okay, I will," said Ming.

"Okay, bye", said Lisa.

"Bye," said Ming.
