I'd really like to avoid Ebola. It sounds nasty, and not a very pleasant way to spend one's last days on Earth. I'll decline any cruise invitation.

I'm sorry, but my equipment doesn't play 8-Track tapes. I can play some cassettes, but I'll have to clean and demagnetize the heads first.

The car is in the shop. Whatever it is, it's going to have to wait. If it's an emergency, call the appropriate emergency contact. Thank you.

When I stopped at my regular Dunkin Donuts, they were out of cream-filled donuts. So I had to find the next Dunkin Donuts that had them.

I'm up now, because the cat decided she wanted to go outside. She'll probably have other wants when she wants back in.

I'll need to take the car into the mechanics. She's leaking something again. And the brakes are squealing. Not all the time. Just starting out, and then it stops.

I was never trained to be a cashier. So I have to ask customer service if you can use 25 cat food coupons.
