SALLY： Listen， Karen， I need your help. I don't know anyone here yet.
KAREN： I'm glad to help you. What's wrong？
SALLY： My mother-in-law just went into the hospital in L.A.
Hank and I will be flying there tonight.
KAREN： I'm sorry to hear it. What's wrong with her？
SALLY： Doctors aren't sure yet.
But the real problem is Suzy. She has a bad cold，
and we don't want to take her with us. But we don't know who can stay with her.
KAREN： You need a babysitter.
SALLY： Yes， I'd ask Jill， the girl I've had before， but I need someone overnight.
Maybe even for two nights.
KAREN： I could have Suzy stay at my place.
SALLY： I don't want to do that to you， Karen.
KAREN： Why not？
SALLY： Your own kids would get Suzy's cold.
I think it would be better to have a good babysitter here. But I don't know who to ask.
I need someone more mature than Jill. It might even be for two or three days.
KAREN： I know who we can ask. There is a girl I know， Sara Ralston.
She is 17， and she will usually take this kind of job.
I know her from my church， and I trust her completely.
SALLY： I'd like to talk with her.
This is short notice， I know. But Hank and I are leaving tonight.
KAREN： I'll get you her number. I hope she can do it. She is very responsible.
SALLY： I'm glad you know someone. I knew you would be the best person to ask about this.
I don't want to insult Jill or her mother. I think Jill maybe could do it.
But I'd rather have someone a little older.
KAREN： I'll go home and get Sara's number. I'll call her first myself.
SALLY： Great. Then call me and let me know if she's free.
