B: you don't look too well. Maybe you should take the day off from work.
Z: I couldn't do that. I have an important meeting to go to today.
B: do you feel ok?
Z: not really. After a 12-hour flight, I've got jetlag, and on top of that, I think I've also got the flu.
B: why don't you call your secretary and tell her to reschedule the meeting? You should really get some seat or you'll end up feeling even worse than you do now.
Z: could you feel my forehead and check to see if I have a fever?
B: you're really hot. Let me get you some Tylenol to bring the fever down.
Z: ok. I'll stay home this morning and rest, but if I feel better in the afternoon, I'm going to the meeting.
B: zach, what's that on your arm?
Z: I don't know. It looks a bit red, but I'm sure it's nothing.
B: it looks like you have a red rash all over you! Are you allergic to anything?
Z: just cats, but I don't think I was near any cats in the last couple of weeks.
B: I completely forgot about your cat allergy. I took care of a cat for my friend here a few days ago. Oh no. we'd better go to the doctor to get some dedicine. Let's go.
Z: shouldn't we make an appointment first?
B: we would, but let's just go and see if there's an opening now before it gets worse.
Z: whatever you say. I just want to get to my meeting!
