She poked me in the eye | Sample English conversation

Storyline: Kavita was playing with her daughter when the child accidentally poked her in the eye.

Mitra: What happened to your eye?

Kavita: Nothing really. My daughter poked me in the eye. Actually I was playing with her when her fingernails scrapped my eye.

Mitra: That’s no good.

Kavita: At first it wasn’t too bad so I just ignored it, but the next morning it really hurt.

Mitra: Didn’t you see a doctor?

Kavita: Yeah, I did.

Mitra: What did he say?

Kavita: He said that it should be okay but it might take a while. Until then I’ll have to live with a blurry eye.

Mitra: I’m so sorry to hear that.

Kavita: Yeah. I never thought that a harmless poke in the eye would cause so much damage.

Notes

  • The report should be ready by evening. (= It is probable that the report will be ready by evening.)
  • You should get better after taking this medicine. (= It is probable that you will get better after taking this medicine.)
