John:  Wasn’t it a great day today, Migs?

Migs:  Yeah, it sure was. So what did you do to take advantage of it?

John:  Well, I rolled out of the sack today and realized that I hadn’t played tennis in about ten years, so I put on my tennis shoes and hit the courts.

Migs:  Really? Who’d you play with?

John:  I played with Anne. She scrounged up some old racquets from her garage.

Migs:  I bet she kicked your ass, didn’t she?

John:  Yeah, she came pretty close. She’s actually a pretty good tennis player. What did you do?

Migs:  Uh, I went out and had a picnic with Stephanie.

John:  Oh yeah? Did you guys bring along some food?

Migs:  Yeah, we made some big heros and potato salad – that kind of stuff.

John:  Did you do anything else?

Migs:  Well, we played frisbee, but I had eaten too much and it made me feel sick. I wanted to throw up!

John:  Oh, that’s rough.

Migs:  Yeah, it sure was.
