Read the dialogue as expressively as you can!
Janice: Good morning! As you know, we are here this morning to discuss strategies for improving office morale. Any suggestions?
Bruce: Yes, I think I’ve got a good one!
Janice: Let’s hear it!
Bruce: «Pajama Mondays»
Bruce: Everybody wears their pajamas and slippers to work on Mondays.
Janice: That’s a terrible idea.
Bruce: I think it would be really fun, and help raise spirits around here.
Janice: Fun? More like ridiculous.
Bruce: I think our clients would like it too.
Janice: Are you crazy? It would never work!
Bruce: Well, do you have any better ideas?
Janice: Anything would be better than that!
