Write the dialogue that lead to the guy wearing the funny paper hat with his suit.


Write the conversation that lead to the changing of the name of this shop.


Write a dialogue between two characters where one tries to convince the other to eat ostrich.


Write a conversation between two people sitting on these steps.
