Russ: Why are you wheezing like that?
Cheryl: I’m not wheezing. I’m just a little short of breath. My lungs feel like they’ve closed up.
Russ: Maybe you should get that checked out. You could have asthma.
Cheryl: Do you really think so? My nasal passages have been stopped up, so I just thought I had a bad cold. My sinuses hurt, too.
Russ: I’m not a doctor, but you may have something more serious, maybe bronchitis or pneumonia. You need a chest x-ray or something.
Cheryl: Wow, so this could be something really serious?
Russ: Why do you sound hopeful that you have a serious condition?
Cheryl: I’m not. That would be stupid.
Russ: And yet, you sounded positively giddy that you might be laid up for a couple of weeks. Does this have anything to do with your upcoming business trip to Abrahamville?
Cheryl: If you had to go to Abrahamville, wouldn’t you wish for an out, too – any out?
