A: David did not come to work again today.
B: He must be very sick to be absent a whole week.
A: My sister made him some soup yesterday.
B: Soup is very good for sick people to eat.
A: Apparently, it wasn't good enough.
B: What else does one do for a sick person?
A: I'm going to send him a get-well card.
B: That is very nice of you.
A: Maybe I'll get the whole office to sign it.
B: Good idea, but I suggest you mail it to him.
A: Why can't I take it to him?
B: If you catch his cold, it will mean more work for us!
