Olga: What’s that, Stephen? Have you got a new camera?
Stephen: Yeah.1 Just what I’ve always wanted. It’s a Christmas present from my parents.
Olga: Really? I’m so happy for you. I love presents. I wish I were a queen, then I would get2 presents every day.
Stephen: Believe it or not, Olga, but this is what happens in real life. I’ve read in a magazine that for Queen Elizabeth, for example, every day is Chrismas day.
Olga: You’re kidding!3
Stephen: Not at all. And some of the presents are very unusual. Once an American hot dog firm sent her a big box of hot dogs with mustard.
Olga: Oh, no! What did she do with them?
Stephen: I have no idea. But it’s clear that presents can be a big problem. Once, when the Queen returned from Canada she brought home a mink coat,4 a large statue of a horse, a pair of snowshoes, a motorboat, a piece of iron, a silver jug5 and a large painting of a power station.

Olga: I’d so much like to go to London one day and visit the British Museum and see Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park and Big Ben.
Stephen: I hope your dream will come true.
