Diana: It's a gorgeous day today! What do you say we take a
picnic and go down to the park?
Doug: Sounds great! Should we pack some sandwiches or pick up something along the way?
Diana: Why don't we stop and get some fried chicken at KFC and head down to Murray Park? Let's bring a few games, too.
Doug: Okay, I'll get the Frisbee and a softball so we can toss them around. And... what do you think? Should we bring the dog?
Diana: Definitely. He'll love it down there.
Doug: I'll get his leash and dog dish. I'm grabbing a tablecloth, too, so we don't have to eat on a dirty picnic table.
Diana: Good idea. I'll bring some napkins. I always get so dirty when I eat fried chicken.
Doug: Wait a minute...
Diana: What is it?
Doug: Did you hear that? I heard thunder. A storm is coming.
Diana: Oh no, you've got to be kidding...
