Todd: Adrienne, we are talking about your family. Can you describe the people in your family? Like, what's your mother like, and what's your father like and your sister?
Adrienne: OK, well, let me start with my mother. I'm hoping she doesn't listen to this, though, maybe. My mother is a very interesting person. She has a great sense of humor(很有幽默感) and she's a very kind woman, a very generous woman. She's also not afraid to say what she is thinking, which is a quality I admire about her very much.
Todd: What about your father? How would you describe your dad?
Adrienne: My dad is probably the nicest man you'll ever meet. He's very kind, very generous, very warm-hearted and he's really a good guy and I love him very much.
Todd: And actually I met your father and he's a very big guy.
Adrienne: He is. Which means he has a very big heart.
Adrienne: He is. My dad's very tall and takes up a lot of space. It's true.
Todd: Gentle-Giant, right?
Adrienne: Something like that. Yeah. Yeah.
Todd: OK, now you have a sister. Is she younger or older?
Adrienne: Younger sister.
Todd: Oh, younger sister. How would you describe her personality?
Adrienne: My sister is actually quite similar to my dad in that she has a very good heart and she's very generous and very open, very friendly and she is probably the only person on the planet who can make me laugh at any moment.
Todd: That's nice.
Adrienne: She cracks me up. So, She's got a great sense of humor, but part of that probably comes from being sisters too.
Todd: Now you said that your sister is very similar to your father, so you are very similar to your mother?
Adrienne: Coincidentally, yes, actually. My mother and I have a lot in common in terms of our personality, which means that we get along very well and then sometimes we don't. Cause we remind of each other perhaps.
Todd: So, like what traits（品质，特征） do you have in common?
Adrienne: I would say that we both very often say what we're thinking, which not everybody likes all of the time.
Todd: I think being outspoken（坦率的） is good.
Adrienne: It can be. It can be which is why I think it's a good quality but it sometimes can lead to more conflict（矛盾，争端） than you're prepared for.
Todd: Right. Well, it sounds like you have a nice balance.
Adrienne: Mm, we do.
