2. Bev was a real estate agent in New York City. She usually left home about 10 a.m. She never drank or ate anything until she returned home. Her husband said, "You need energy. Eat some lunch." She said, "I can't eat anything after I leave the house. I don't carry a toothbrush or toothpaste." He said, "No problem. Put them into your purse." She said, "That's extra weight. Every day I walk 30 blocks. I climb 20 flights of stairs. My purse is so heavy. Besides, it's full. I don't have room in my purse. Look!" He looked into her purse. It was full. He lifted it. It was heavy. He said, "Well, you should at least drink lots of water. I'm sure all that walking makes you thirsty." She said, "I get thirsty, but I don't dare drink. It's too hard to find a clean place to pee!" 1.6
