Jenny: My name’s Jenny. I’d like to tell you a little bit about some of the things I like, and then a little bit about some of the things I don't. First of all, I really enjoy physical exercise of any kind. No matter what time I get up in the morning, I always begin my day with five minutes of exercise. I never miss a day.
I also swim once a week. If I have time on Saturday morning, I go to the beach to swim in the sea but if I can’t manage this, I’ll go to a pool one evening during the week.
I also like dancing. At the moment I attend a salsa class on Thursday evenings after school. Do you know what salsa is? It’s a very fast South American dance that involves a lot of rhythm and shaking your body. I always go home very tired after my salsa class.
I am claustrophobic , so I don't like travelling in the back of a car - if I’m a passenger in a car, I have to sit in the front. I don’t like rude people. I think it is important that people say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, and don’t push or shove. And don’t laugh … but I don’t like wearing trousers. My legs aren't long enough to wear trousers. I think they make me look like a Hobbit, so I always stick to skirts or dresses.
Joe: I’m Joe. I don’t have any strong likes or dislikes. I’m very easygoing, really. Does that make me sound boring? I hope not. One thing I do like is meeting new people. I like to find out about different ways of life, where people are from and what they think. I’m a good mixer.
And I really like animals, especially dogs, cats and horses. I’m a member of an equestrian club and am learning to ride. The lessons are so expensive! I also do volunteer dog-walking for a dog rescue charity at the weekend. The only problem is that I always want to bring all the dogs home with me.
When I was little, I always tried to talk my mum and dad into letting me get a puppy, but they never did. They said having a dog was not fair because we lived in a small flat. But now I’m about to buy my own place, so I will most certainly get a dog as soon as I’ve settled down.
Now, what don’t I like? I really hate waiting. Sometimes I’m not very patient and I like to hurry things along. I would never wait in line for a seat in a restaurant or to go into a shop. People queuing up to buy the latest phone? What a waste of time! Come off it! Life is too short to wait in a queue for anything …… unless you really have to.
