Suzanna: Remind me why we’re staying in this fleabag motel in the seedy part of town?

Kenji: We agreed that we would skimp on the accommodations so we could spend more money on activities and eating out. Remember?

Suzanna: I remember, but I didn’t bargain for someplace as run-down as this. Look at the peeling wallpaper and moldy bathroom.

Kenji: It’s pretty bad, isn’t it? Look on the bright side. At least it’s not rat-infested.

Suzanna: That’s small comfort. Well, I think I’ll take a short nap before we go out for dinner. Uh!

Kenji: What’s the matter?

Suzanna: This comforter is filthy. I doubt housekeeping has changed it in months!

Kenji: Let’s get out of here and go get a drink. That should cheer us up.

Suzanna: Good idea. If I have more than one, maybe I won’t care so much where we’re staying.

Kenji: Given the state of this room, we might need an entire pitcher!
