Hi there, this is Jack and welcome back to Lithuanian Out Loud.  Today’s episode is not much of an episode.  Raminta and I are starting to put together some episodes that are centered around common conversations.  For instance, today’s script was supposed to go something like this…

(good day) laba diena
(good day) labą dieną
Two for lunch, please
Three persons?
No, just two
There’s about a 15 minute wait
Okay, that’s fine
Name?
Kšanytė
Kšanytė…okay, we’ll call your name when your table is ready
Oh, is there room at the bar?
Sure, you can sit at the bar and you won’t have to wait
Great, we’ll do that

Today, Raminta and her friend tried to record this conversation in Lithuanian but they couldn’t get through it.  I’m gonna go ahead and give you the recording and you’ll see why they couldn’t keep to the script.  We’ll keep working on this and probably within two or three days we’ll get the final version out to you.  Anyway, we hope that you enjoy this version of the conversation.
