Todd: So, Keri, I hear you have a new house.
Keri: Yes, I do. Oh, so what's your new house like? It's small, it's old. It's mostly wooden in the inside. It has two rooms and a balcony off of those rooms and downstairs there's like a living room area and a tatami* mat room, kitchen, bathroom.
Todd: Wow, so do you live in the tatami mat room?
Keri: No, there's two tatami mat rooms. There's one upstairs and there's one downstairs and I don't live in either. One we use as kind of a spare room and the other one is my roommates bedroom.
Todd: Oh, OK. So you have a roommate?
Todd: What's it like having a roommate?
Keri: It's good. It's good. I like living alone too but sometimes it's nice to come home and have someone there and my roommate gets home before I do and she likes to cook so often she's cooked dinner for me.
Todd: Wow, that's nice.
Keri: I know.
Todd: Well, you do all the cleaning?
Keri: Well, now that you mention it, I do a lot of the cleaning, but no, not all of it. Oh, OK.
Todd: Well, what kind of things does she make you?
Keri: Last night she made curry. I think it was an Indian curry, tomato based.
Todd: Cool. Alright, thanks a lot Keri.
Keri: You're welcome.
