 Gerald

 Hey, Frank! You still look the same as you did twenty years ago.

 Frank

 Gerald? Is that you? It sure is good to see you after all these years. So, what are you doing these days?

 Gerald

 Well, after high school, I studied Journalism in college and now I'm an newspaper reporter for the National Tribune.

 Frank

 Wow! That sounds exciting.

 Gerald

 Yeah, but sometimes I wish I had a normal 9 to 5 job like everyone else. In fact, I'm thinking about quitting. A friend of mine recently offered me a job working as an editor for a weekly newsmagazine. Anyways, how about you? What do you do?

 Frank

 I own a small delicatessen. We specialize in meats and cheeses from around the world.

 Gerald

 Really? How is your business doing?

 Frank

 Actually, I'm really busy now. We plan on opening a second store this summer.

 Gerald

 It must be nice to be the boss. My boss is always so demanding. No matter what I write he never seems to be satisfied.

 Frank

 Well, it's good to be the boss, but it's also a lot more stressful.
