Paul: Hi. Lunchtime is over. Are you coming up to the office?
Bob: I’m too tired to go back to the office. Planning a wedding is hard work. I need a holiday.
Paul: Let’s make today a holiday. We’ll tell Mr. Evans we can’t come back to work.
Bob: That’s a great idea.
Marie: What are we celebrating?
Paul: You’re getting married. How about National Wedding Day?
Bob: What happens on National Wedding Day?
Paul: I don’t know. Why am I the one who has to think of everything?
Marie: Why don’t we make it National Singles Day instead? All the married people give gifts to their single friends.
Bob: No. Buying gifts is hard work. I want to enjoy myself on our new holiday.
Cheryl: What about a Red Day? Everybody wears red clothes, and there’s dancing in the street that goes on all night.
Bob: How about National Buy-Your-Friend-Another-Cup-of-Coffee Day?
Paul: Nice try.
Mr. Evans: How about National On-Time Day?
Bob: What happens on National On-Time Day?
Mr. Evans: You remind one another to come back to work on time.
Paul: Happy holiday.
Mr. Evans: Waitress!
