“So what’ next Thursday? National Murder Day?”
“Ha. No, just a day I have to take care of some business.”

“You’re serious, aren’t you?”
“As that heart-attack.”

“So…. what… are you some kind of assassin?”

“So, no, just a business man with plans.”

“So who are you going to kill? Wait… you mean kill as in killing their business, right?”

A pause. “Yes, Tad, that’s what I meant.”

“Whew! You had me going there for a moment.”

“I did, didn’t I.”

“I mean I really thought you were going to kill somebody on Thursday.”

“Ha. How silly.”

“Right, I mean, really. How stupid can you be?”

“Right, I’d imagine.”

“So… if you were going to kill somebody, who would it be?”

“You, of course.”

“Ha! That’s a good one. Luckily my business has nothing you’d want.”

“That is so true. I guess you are safe then.”

“Lucky me.”


“HA! HA! You are so funny! Well, I have to get back to work. See you later, Bill.”

“Later, Tad… Just don’t make any Friday plans!”
