cheer A up:
word on the street is...:
Sean: Hey, Jimbo. I heard you were
having a bit of a dry spell, so I thought I might bring by some
news that would cheer you up.
Jim: Oh, yeah. What is it?
Sean: Have you ever heard of Helix
Jim: Sure, it's that company that
makes office supplies. They service a lot of the firms around here.
Sean: That's them. Well, word on
the street is that Helix Inc. is about to go belly up, and it looks
like they made a deal with Office Wizard to be taken over. That
means that Office Wizard will be the biggest office supply company
in the country. As soon as the take-over happens, their stocks are
going to soar. It's going to be a good buy. Do you want in?
Jim: What!? But, but, Sean, isn't
that kind of dangerous, not to mention illegal?
Sean: Alright look, Jim, I gotta
run, but I want you to think about this and I'll come back later
this afternoon. You need this, buddy. You're in a slump. See ya.
