4. A Get-Well Card

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!
