What is the title? Who is the author?
Thomas. Come on, Patrick, you'll have fun. You'll learn a lot, and you'll be helping a family
have a home that they otherwise couldn't afford.
Patrick. I don't know, Thomas. I've never built anything before, much less a house.
Thomas. You don't have to build the whole thing by yourself. There are dozens of people
donating their time. Someone will show you just what to do.
Patrick. What if a piece of wood falls on me or I step on a nail . . . ?
Thomas. What if, what if. What if you just said yes to the project?
Patrick. Well, I don't know . . .
Thomas. Come for three hours on Saturday. If you're not having fun by then, you can leave.
And I won't tease you like I did when you quit the baseball team.
