Life Is Tough for Girls, Too

W: I don't know what's wrong with me these days.

M: What happened?

W: This morning I told myself I'm going to try and be happy and not let anything *get me down. A few minutes later, I fell!

M: What? How? Where did you fall?

W: Right across from *the Student Plaza when I was about to go left. Ha ha. To think: I was on the way to the gym!

M: Were you hurt? Any *bruises?

W: Yeah. I think I was *bleeding internally.

M: That's terrible! Are you OK now? Does it hurt?

W: A bit.

M: You didn't go to the gym after that, right? I mean you went to the health office to get it treated, yes?

W: Of course I went to the gym! Who do you think I am? *Skipping my gym routine because of a little pain? Pfft. I even ran on the *treadmill for an hour!

M: Hey, you said you were bleeding internally. That's something more serious than a bruise, I *reckon?!

W: Well, nothing to worry about. Surprisingly, gym is medicine. I'm fine now.

M: I've never heard of such a thing. Hey, can we make this clear? You fell? And WHAT actually did you *hurt?

W: My heart, friend! I saw the guy I *had a crush on for months. He was with another girl! They both looked all *clingy and sweet together! I just couldn't take it, so I went exercising!

M: Ah! Why did we have this conversation?
