'Hey dude,' Brian said to Ray as he walked in to work at midday. 'How's it hanging?'
'Dude,' grunted Ray. 'It's been a totally bogus morning.'
'S'up?' enquired Brian, lazily high-fiving Ray, who was opposite him on the other side of the counter. 'Give me the everything that's whack in the world of Ray.'
'Ok, you want the whole works. First of all,' said Ray counting it off on his fingers, 'there's work. Totally uncalled-for, dude. Every day: work. Secondly, my brother thought it'd be the most fun if he stole all my boxers.'
Brian winced. 'Don't mess with a man's boxers, dude. Seriously uncalled-for.'
'Exactly, dude. For real. So I'm like borrowing my dad's.'
'Dude, that's so not cool.'
Ray nodded. 'Exactly, man. Bogus city. And to top it all, I have the most enormous zit on my chin.'
'Where, dude? I don't see it.'

'Man, that's most heinous. You know why you got that?'
'The universe is against me?'
Brian nodded his head. 'Exactly, dude. So many bogus experiences in one morning - it's stressing you out. You need some beauty sleep.'
'Awesome advice bro',' agreed Ray. 'I'll go in the back and. You'll be ok on your own?'
'Dude, it's lunchtime. I'll shut the shop while I go down Maccy D's for a coffee and some of that ice-cream they make from powder.'
'Respect, bro'.'
'You know it.'
