"Oh, I'm so bored; I just have to get out of this house!" Lisa said. "But I don't have enough money to go to a movie or dinner. What can we do?"
"Let's think of some places we can go that don't cost a lot of money," Lisa's friend John suggested.

"Let's look in the paper and see what is happening around town," John said. "There is always something going on that doesn't cost a lot."Paragraphs 9 to 19:
