Subject: Birthday Present Ideas for Jennifer
To: Marisa (email@example.com)
Thanks for offering to help pick out a pet for Jennifer’s 10th birthday. Sometimes I think an (1. relative / friend / sister / aunt) is better at picking out a birthday present than a mother.
So I’ve attached some ideas for us to think over. I have three ideas that I think I should be able to (2. afford / care / get / adapt). I just don’t know which of the (3. animal / choice / three / idea) Jennifer would be happiest with though.
If I get her a (4. pet / cat / bird / rabbit), Jennifer might end up getting (5. excited / bored / used / along) with it if it just sits in its cage staring at her,
swinging back and forth and possibly chirping. A rabbit or a (6. pet / cat / bird / dogs) would be more playful and interactive for Jennifer, don’t you think? Especially a cat. The thing I like about a bird though, is that I don’t have to worry about it (7. cleaning / disturbing / running / messing) up the house while I’m out. I guess I could also keep the rabbit in some (8. sort / kinds / part / place) of cage.
I’ll phone you later tonight to talk more about this.
Bye for now,
