Kathleen and Mark arrived at the airport in Bangkok with plenty of time before their flight. "That was a great vacation," Kathleen said. "Don't you think so, Mark?"

Mark nodded. "I can't wait to get the pictures developed!"

"Yeah," Kathleen agreed. "I bet some of them are really great. We did so many exciting things! What was your favorite part of the trip?"

"Hmm ..." Mark thought for a moment. "I really enjoyed seeing all the Buddhist temples, but the beach was also so beautiful. I don't know. I liked it all!"

"Me too," Kathleen said. "As a trip, it was a success!"

They stepped up to the counter to check in. "May I have your passports, please?" the woman working there asked.

Kathleen reached into her backpack to get their passports. She took out Mark's and put it on the counter. "Hey, where's mine?" she said. "Mark, where's my passport?"
