Y: Patrick, are you ready for the pool?
P: Oh yeah, I've got my bathing suit, my goggles....
P: This is my swim cap.
Y: It's so ugly.
P: It keeps the chlorine out of my hair and it lets me swim faster. Are you going to do some laps?
P: You know, swimming in the lane back and forth a few times for exercise.
Y: Oh, doing laps就是在游泳池里一趟一趟地来回游。怪不得上次我买游泳衣，那个店员问我Are you just doing laps? 不过，swimming laps sounds like too much work. 我还是晒太阳好了。
P: It is a good workout. So what style are you best at?
P: Backstroke isn't bad, but you should check out my butterfly stroke (Splash Sound). Way better.
P: You should check it out. Watch.
Y: That's a butterfly? 我看你不像蝴蝶，倒是像个蚂蚱。
P: I don't look like a grasshopper. Are you going to get in or just stand there criticizing?
Y: Ok, Ok, I'm coming in, 不过我要跳水。
P: Dive in? Remember not to dive in the shallow end!
Y: Why not?
P: That's the part that is not deep enough to dive in. Do you want to hit your head?
Y: Here I go! (splash)
