1 "Mr. Roberts is retiring," Susan said to David as she set a plate on the breakfast table.
2 David looked up from the newspaper he was reading. "No kidding."
3 "He is quitting his job at the end of the month."
4 "Wow," David said. "He's been our mailman for a very long time."

8 "I could have passed on those," David said with a laugh.
