A: "Hey John. How are you doing?"
B: "I'm doing great. How about you?"
A: "Me too. I just finished moving into the dormitory. It seems alright."
B: "Oh man. You should have joined a fraternity."
A: "You're in a fraternity? Which one?"
B: "I'm with Delta Tau Delta. It is going to be so much fun."
A: "How much does it cost?"
B: "I have to pay $475 a month. It comes with two meals (a day) though."
A: "Damn. That's the same price I'm paying for the dormitory. How often do they take new members?"
B: "Every semester. When they start recruiting, I'll be sure to let you know."
A: "That would be great."
