The Four Questions Are Like Rain On Your Wedding Day, Or A Black Fly In Your Chardonnay

Q. What is Dave wearing today?
A. Right now Dave is wearing an old t-shirt and a pair of ratty shorts. These clothes are his pajamas. He is still in bed.

Q. How does Dave feel today?
A. Dave feels sick. His throat is itchy and his head feels like it is packed with phlegm.

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave's mood today?
A. In addition to handshakes, hugs and hearty good wishes, it seems that some of Dave's former coworkers at the Tampa Tribune also gave him flu or cold germs yesterday. Dave began feeling ill late yesterday afternoon, about an hour after he got home.

Q. Does Dave see the irony of catching the flu or cold from his coworkers in the office on his last day at work?
A. Dave says it is a remarkable coincidence. He doesn't recognize it as irony because he is a graduate of Emory University, and not the Alanis Morissette Literary Device Correspondence School.
