Alex:
Would you rather stay home and cook dinner or go out?
Betty:                
I'd rather go out.  I am pretty tired today, so I don't want to cook.  What about you? Would you rather stay in or go out?

Alex:               
I would prefer to stay in, but we can go out if you would like.

Betty:                  
That would be nice.  What type of restaurant would you like to go to?

Alex:                
I'd prefer to go somewhere quiet.

Betty:                
Really?  Not me.  I would rather go somewhere fun, maybe even with some live music.

Alex:                
But I thought you were tired?

Betty:                
I am, but not too tired to have some fun.

Alex:                
Well, I'd prefer not to, but…..OK.
