Josh: Okay people, we've got signs to make, voters to 1)coerce, and speeches to perfect. Hook the coffee to your veins and ①let's get moving!
Donna: Josh, there's this thing called sleep. Most people do it at night. Have you heard of it?
Josh: We can sleep when we're dead. The elections for student council are only two weeks away and ②I will get Naomi Bartlett elected president come hell or high water. Tina! ③How's the 2)slogan coming?
Tina: We've got a couple of options so far: Bartlett for Betterment?
Josh: Do you really think the president of the student council should be promoting poor grammar?
Tina: It was just an option, ④keep your shirt on. Bartlett the 3)Starlet?
Josh: And now she sounds like a 4)tart.
Tina: I work better with sleep.
Josh: You can sleep after you get me a campaign slogan. I want to see ten solid options in the next hour. Donna! Where'd you go?
Donna: I'm right here. Just getting us some coffee.
Josh: I don't need coffee, I need you to be calling the department heads and securing us votes.
Donna: Josh, how can I keep my eye on the prize if my eyes keep closing from exhaustion? ⑤Let me catch my second wind and those department heads won't know what hit them.
Josh: They'd better know that it's Naomi Bartlett that hit them. Tony! What's the 411 on those posters?
Tony: The printing shop said they'd be in by noon, but my hands are tied on the second batch until I get the campaign slogan from Tina.
Josh: ⑥Tina's sworn up and down that you'll have it in an hour.
Tony: I'll believe it when I see it. Oh, and tell Naomi the closing lines of her speech sound like she's trying too hard.
Josh: She is trying hard.
Tony: Yeah, but she doesn't want to sound like it, does she?
Josh: ⑦Good point, thanks for the heads up. Donna!
Donna: ⑧I'm right here under your nose. Seriously Josh, what would you do without me?
Josh: Argue less.
Donna: And that would be so boring. Here's your coffee.
