One man: [Enters the washroom].
The other man: It’s been a long time since I saw you here. What happened, don’t you drink enough water? But, anyway, it’s good to see you.
One man: Good to see you, too. It’s winter time, and water is cold. Don’t feel like drinking much.
The other man: Do drink a lot of water no matter it is winter or summer. I am not saying that, like some nutritionists do, for your good health, but I am saying that because that way I will have the opportunity to see you here more often.
One man: I would rather contain the water in me as long as I can than visit the washroom, as often as you do, and waste my time.
The other man: Be careful of such thoughts. Have you not heard of people accumulating stones in their bellies? It is winter, and if you contain the water in you for too long, the water would freeze, and then you would find it difficult to carry yourself with all the weight, plus, of course, you would incur unnecessary cost to remove the stones.
One man: Well… [Makes a move out of the washroom].
The other man: See you again! The sooner the better.
