Response: Amy went to the drive-in theater. She and her friends bought pop and kettle corn. They were wearing their best poodle skirts and flats. “Gee, it sure is swell to see this film with you all!” Amy chirped. “Well golly, Amy, we wouldn’t have it any other way!” replied one of her best friends, whose name was Sue. Then the movie began. Halfway through the film, Becky laughed, “What a delightful venture. I am having a marvelous time!” Everyone else giggled politely in agreement. When they left the drive-in and had all gone back to their houses, Amy clutched her handbag and a cherry coke and went back up to her room to read her new novel, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and she thought about the wonderful evening she had participated in.
