Peter's cell phone rings:
"Peter, it's Liz"
"Oh, hi Liz, you don't usually call me. What's up?"
"Actually, I really need your help. My car broke down. Thankfully I'm in the parking lot of a highway cafe. I stopped to get gas, and when I tried to start the car, nothing happened."
"Have you asked anyone to jump the battery?"
"I would have but there's no one here! It's just me."
(1)"How about you text me your location. How far do you think you are from the college?"
"Only three miles. (2)I'm sorry to ask you, but I didn't know who else to call."
"No problem; never hesitate to call me if you need help."
"Thanks Peter, I really appreciate it. (3)I was beginning to worry as it's so late."
"Look, just stay in the car, keep warm, and I'll be there soon. I'm leaving right now."
