The House Guest
Jim is telling Cecily about his house guest.
Cecily: Hey, Jim. What's going on? You look like a basket case!
Jim:You can say that again. Susan's brother dropped in from out of town,so I offered to put him up for a few days. He's drivmg me up a wall. For one thing, he's eating me out of house and home. He stays up till alt hours of the night watching the tube, then raids the fridge before he turns in. The guy's a bottomless pit. You should see the way he puts it away. He even belches after he eats.
Cecily: How gross. I can't handle people like that. Does he at least give you a hand around the house?
Jim:He doesn't lift a finger! I bend over backwards cleaning up all day and he sleeps in until noon. Oh, and check this out... then he gets on the horn with his friends and invites them over.
Cecily: Man, what a freeloader. You better do something quick or he'll never hit the road. After all, he's got it made in the shade here.
Jim:You think he Etiight stay even longer?
Cecily: Now, don't go falling apart. If you're that fed up, just kick hitn out... but do it with kid gloves. I know!Tell him a white lie like you're getting the house fumigated!
Jim:That wouldn't be a lie!
