Jack: I am super stressed!!
Jessica: Why?
Jack: Jonas just told me that we have a test today in class!
Jessica: How come you didn’t know that?
Jack: I was sick this week so I have been absent for three days.
Jessica: Oh no!! What are you going to do?
Jack: I’ve been cramming for the test for the past hour!
