Guy 1: Hey man, did you see the game last night?
Guy 2: Yeah. Good game!
Guy 1: I also enjoyed the game. What was your favorite part of the game?
Guy 2: The points.
Guy 1: Now you are talking! The points are so great. How about those cheers?
Guy 2: It’s funny, but I never got into the cheers.
Guy 1: …
Guy 2: …
Guy 1: …
Guy 2: But it’s never kept me from loving the games!
Guy 1: Let’s just change the subject, I think it is for the best.
Guy 2: OK. Uh. How’s your family’s health?
Guy 1: Not great, buddy. Everyone in my family, including myself, is very sick.
Guy 2: I’m really sorry to hear that. Have you seen a doctor?
Guy 1: We tried, but the doctor was also sick.
Guy 2: Tough break.
Guy 1: Thanks for asking, though.
Guy 2: No problem. [Cough cough]
Guy 1: Uh oh!
Guy 2: Haha, you probably got me sick!
[Both guys laugh very hard.]
Guy 1: They say laughter is the best medicine, but I have been laughing plenty, and both myself and everyone that I know remains very sick, so maybe our laughter is expired?
Guy 2: I was reading an article in the newspaper the other day that said that people laugh when their bosses make jokes because they are scared of getting fired from work.
Guy 1: Speaking of which.
Guy 2: Yeah. Well, this has been great. I love you.
Guy 1: I love you too, very much.
