▶ Dialogue


 Brad

 Hey, Bill, are you okay? You look a little tired.

 Bill

 Yeah, I have a terrible hangover. I was out late drinking with my some of my old college buddies. Do you happen to have any aspirin?

 Brad

 Sure, I have some in my desk. So, what happened? Usually you never get drunk.

 Bill

 Well, at first, I started out drinking only beer, but later on we ordered a bottle of scotch. After the scotch, I was feeling pretty good. Then one of the guys suggested we go to another bar for some tequila.

 Brad

 But, I thought you hated tequila.

 Bill

 Yeah, but we were having such a good time and I didn't want to be the first one to leave. I think I must have had about eight shots.

 Brad

 Eight shots! That's a lot of tequila. So, how did you get home? You must have been pretty drunk.

 Bill

 My friends put me in a cab. Then I must have passed out. The next thing I remember is standing in front of my house and puking all over the sidewalk.  I must have passed out again because I don't remember anything else until I woke up this morning on the living room floor.

 Brad

 Good thing your wife is out of town on business this week. If she found out, I don't think she would ever let you go out drinking again.

 Bill

 Yeah, so let's just keep this little secret between you and me. Now, would you pass me the aspirin? This is one bad hangover.
