Let's talk about a favorite object. I will ask you some questions. Are you ready? Yes, I'm ready. Great! So, what is your favorite object?

I think, uh, my favorite object is, um, headphones.

That's interesting. Why are headphones your favorite object? How do you use them?

Uh, I like Sal traveling and, uh, I don't want to feel, uh, lonely. So, I like to listen to music, podcasts, or so on. And for this reason, I use, uh, my headphones.

That's a great reason to have headphones as your favorite object. What do your headphones look like? Can you describe them?

Yeah, actually it is my first one so big, uh, headphones because before I had just small ones. And it is black, but honestly, I wanted pink. But, uh, there was no pink one in the shop when I bought it.

I see, so your headphones are black and big. How do your headphones make you feel when you use them?

Um, I can say that, uh, safe maybe because, um, I feel so comfortable anywhere where I could be, um, just with my headphones.

That's a great feeling to have. Is there a story behind your headphones? How did you get them?

Um, I don't have some special story, but, um, I got them from my grandmother. She gave me money for buying them. But actually, I could afford them myself. No, I don't know how to say it, but I could buy it. But she decided to give me the present like this.

That's a nice gift from your grandmother. Do your headphones remind you of a certain time or place?

Um, maybe they remind me of my first trip to Naples because it was the first time when I used them, and I felt so relaxed and great with them.
