PAST CONTINUOUS / PAST PROGRESSIVE
Though I have tried to frame the statements from the Past Continuous Tense but as a conversation is not possible in one tense only, so I have taken the help of Past Indefinite as well to complete the conversation. . Focus on how the statements in Past Continuous Tense have been framed .
Thank You !
Vinita – Hello Sunita, Were you waiting for me in the restaurant yesterday?
Sunita ( irritating ) – No, I was waiting for your ghost.
Vinita- Sorry, I couldn’t make time. My aunt was leaving for Delhi yesterday. So I had to see off her.
Sunita- But you told me earlier that she was going on Monday only.
Vinita- Yes true, but her children were calling her now and then. So She decided to leave yesterday only.
Vinita ( Kidding )- Oh, I see. But I guess, you were having a great time alone.
Sunita- Yes true. When you were not receiving my calls, I decided to enjoy myself alone.
Vinita: Sorry I was preparing snacks for my aunt, I couldn’t notice your call. My phone was on silent mode.
Sunita- But I was calling your mother’s number as well.
Vinita- Yes, Mom was helping her in packing.
Sunita- It’s OK, I understand, good excuses.
Vinita- No seriously, Tell me, were you seriously enjoying there without me?
Sunita- Yes sure, Yesterday, with the situations I was learning a very meaningful lesson about life.
Sunita- And what was that?
Vinita – “Never be dependent upon anyone. You alone are enough for this world. Enjoy your own company.”
Sunita- True Vinita. I am sorry, I should have left a message at least.
Vinita- It’s OK. I am not angry. Just because you didn’t come, I was observing many things alone there.
Sunita – And what were you observing.
Vinita- I was observing different faces with their astounding behaviour.
Sunita- And how were you finding their behavior astounding?
Vinita- They were entering there in their cheerful moods
but after some time I found each of them with complaining expressions.
Sunita – Ha ha, ha. What other things were you observing there?
Vinita- I was observing the activities of the staff also.
Sunita – Ohhh.
Vinita – Yes, and you know, what I noticed in them.
Sunita – What?
Vinita- I noticed that most of them were forcing themselves
to adjust to the surroundings. But from within they were not
willing to do this job.
Sunita- So sad.
Vinita- I saw there a family had brought their pet dog. Who was
enjoying it alone?
Sunita- HA, ha, really
Vinita- Yes they were giving it everything, it was demanding
in its language. And it was eating everything.
Sunita- Really Vinita, You enjoyed yourself alone there.
Vinita- One day you must also visit anywhere with your own
company. I am sure your company is not so worse. ( ha , ha, ha)
Sunita- Sure, now let’s have a cup of coffee together. And
again asking sorry for yesterday.
Vinita- OK, Forgiven and forgot. Let’s go.
