Alec: I read an impressive story last night. Before I tell the story, tell me what kind of activity you'll do when you're in your 70s.
Sari: I'll probably want to retain an active lifestyle. Perhaps I'll walk dogs in a park or play Majang.
Alec: Well, check this out. A 75-year-old black woman named Barbara just finished a "North Pole trek," making her the first black woman and one of the oldest people to accomplish the feat.
Sari: 75 years old? She must be a strong-minded woman.
Alec: You don't usually come off as a person who's easily impressed! Maybe you can try walking a dog in the North Pole when you're 75!
Sari: I've been inspired by that story, so don't be surprised if I do!
