Harp: For sure, what is the special Catch Word today?
Harp: OK so what is “wasted”?
Robin: “Wasted” means, for example, if I go out and I drink a whole bunch of alcohol I get wasted, so I am completely, completely drunk.
Harp: So, wasted is when you are drunk?
Robin: When you are completely drunk, completely, absolutely.
Harp: Not a little bit, completely.
Robin: You are gone.
Harp: So, I feel like you need to tell me about the last time that you were wasted.
Robin: The last time I was wasted, well, I was on a cruise ship, I was visiting one of my friends and he was working on this cruise ship and he had access to a lot of alcohol, he was friends with the people behind the bar and the first night I got on and he took me to the bar and we drank and drank and drank and because of that I was pretty wasted.
Harp: Nice, I want to go on a cruise ship.
Robin: Yeah, you should come next time.
Robin: Yeah, yeah!
Harp: Excellent! OK, so now, “wasted” and “drunk,” they have the same meaning.
