Hey Joe, Day of the Dead will soon be here, and I am looking forward to the festivities. It will be nice to see my loved ones that are left.
I’m not sure that I’ll recognize anyone, but I’ll go with you, it’ll be fun.
You know that they’ll have all our favorite dishes there, don’t you?
Ah yes, the aromas from the foods are quite appetizing. Only wish we could sample them.
Joe, how many people do you think will be here?
If you count all the live people in town and us dead ones, quite a few.
