  • His colleague asks him right away, "Why are you so cold?"
  • Bill replies, "I forgot my coat, and it started snowing while I was walking to work!"
  • The next day, Bill arrives at his office and his hair is all over the place.
  • His colleague asks him right away, "Why is your hair so crazy?"
