Poker last night – level 1
This is a comedy. It is about two friends. One played poker last night. They are talking about it. This is the text. It can be difficult for your level. Try to understand some words.
So, how was your night of poker with the boys?
Yeah, good, good. I mean (think) I didn’t... I wasn’t brilliant at the start because, you know, I was mostly vomiting (my food went out of my mouth). But then I knuckled down (I worked hard) and I brought (played) my A game (best game) and things got a lot better.
Good, how much did you win?
No, no, I lost 200 pounds. But it’s less than I usually lose.
Still 200 hundred pounds though (But you lost a lot of money, 200 pounds).
But listen to this. Dan let me off (didn’t want money from me). He just totally let me off. Proper (good) men are so cool (perfect). They just don’t care about money (Money is not important for them).
Where is my fucking money? I want my money. Give me my money.
Yeah, yeah, really?
I am only joking... (I only want to be funny.)
You are funny.
not my outer (outside) appearance (clothes and hair).
