Sandy: Thank you, Rob. What sport are we talking about today?
Rob: Let’s talk about bowling*!
Sandy: Bowling is fun! I go bowling every week.

Rob: And you try to knock* down all 10 pins*.
Sandy: If you knock all the pins down, you throw a strike*.
Rob: Do you get a lot of points for a strike?
Sandy: Yes, you do. If you can get a lot of strikes, you can win.
