    all night and I cant sleep.

    W: I’m sorry you feel that way. My sister insists that he come.

    Q: Why has Alex been invited to the party?

    Q: Why cannot Professor Hailey answer her questions now? 19. M: I think that short hair is fashionable these days, but you looked so much nicer with long
