Jill: I’m not going to the party tonight.
Jack: We must go. Or my boss would be mad. You know him.
Jill: I don’t care. Your corporate parties are big yawns.
Jack: We’ll go, pretend enjoying and leave in a bit.
Jill: Jack, No is spelled N and O.
Jack: Ok. Actually, not going would spare us from a lot even beyond tonight.
Jill: What do you mean?
Jack: This would even spare you from planning our Europe trip.
Jill: Hunh?! *panics* Why?
Jack: I am ditching the party that he is hosting.
Jack: For the trip, I’m counting on the bonus that boss would sanction; or not.
Jill: Umm, what should I wear for the party tonight? Red or Black?
