Talking Dictionary140. A Sunny Fourth Of July In Manhattan


140. "What do you want to do on the Fourth?" he asked his wife. She said she was up for almost anything. He looked online. A tour company offered boat tours along with double‐decker bus tours. It had downtown, uptown, and night bus tours. It had a Hudson River tour. "We'll start with a nice boat ride on the Hudson. Then we'll sightsee Manhattan from the top of a bus," he said. She asked him about the weather. "It's going to be hot," he said. "July Fourth is always hot." She said, "I mean, what if it rains?" He said not to worry. "The buses and boats run in the rain," he said. "Well, I don't run in the rain," she said. "If it's raining, you can go by yourself." He told her not to worry. "It never rains on July Fourth," he said. "It would ruin too many church barbecues." 1.8
