Becky is talking about her family.

Hi, my name is Becky. I'm 13. Let me talk about my family. There are 6 people in my family. Besides me, they are Grandpa & Grandma, Mom and Dad, and my kid brother Chris. Grandpa and Grandma are so old that I keep forgetting how old they are. My dad is 38. He seldom talks. My mom is the one who nags all the time. My younger brother Chris is, well, okay, but sometimes he's such a trouble maker. When I'm watching a variety show, he wants to watch a cartoon. When I'm listening to Ricky Martin, he shouts "Quiet!" because he wants to study for a test, he says. Well, who knows what he does in his room, after he swears to Mom he'd study hard. Anyway, Mom often catches him playing computer games in his room. So, I usually just go next door where Aunt Daisy and Uncle Tim and my two cousins live. My cousins are my age; Alice is 14 and Tracy's 13, too. We go to the same school, and after school we usually hang out together. Sometimes we see a movie or go window shopping. Most of the time we are just happy chatting. Stuff like clothing, dating, friends, music, anything will cheer us up, as long as Chris is not around.
