Modal: Might/May/Could.            Usage: Possibility
In Pairs – one is a journalist and the other a famous actor’s manager. Both of you have diaries and the journalist needs to try to schedule an interview that will take about 2 hours. 
The manager needs to be cagey about the actor’s free time. The journalist should try to make an appointment during the week and the manager should rebuff him/her with phrases such as: “You could come on Friday morning, but only for 15 minutes”, or “He might have time Monday at 3 pm, but only for an hour”. Finally, there should be a 2 hour slot in the diary and only when the journalist guesses it can the appointment be made.

He ran to work, had neither eye for the horses that ran in the field nor for the children that ran in the playground. Fortunately Mary ran to her second appointment at the office, so she hadn't noticed John was late again. John relaxed and was about to tell his colleague a dirty joke when Mary entered, so he ran back to his workplace. Because he hadn't drunk any coffee yet, he ran to the coffee machine in the coffee break to be the first in line.
