Choose A Gift

(1) Tom: Listen
Hey, Jimmy. I want to give Owen a [vocab word=gift]gift[/vocab].
(2) Jimmy: Listen
Oh?
(3) Tom: Listen
He [vocab word=fix]fixed[/vocab] my car last Sunday. My car runs now.
(4) Jimmy: Listen
That's nice of him!
(5) Tom: Listen
Yeah. I know a very good [vocab word=chocolate]chocolate[/vocab] shop. Does Owen like chocolates?
(6) Jimmy: Listen
Owen doesn't eat chocolates. He says sugar is unhealthy.
(7) Tom: Listen
Oh. How about flowers? Maybe [vocab word=rose]roses[/vocab], [vocab word=lily]lilies[/vocab], [vocab word=orchid]orchids[/vocab] ...
(8) Jimmy: Listen
No. Owen is an [vocab word=environmentalist]environmentalist[/vocab]. He doesn't like [vocab word=import]imported[/vocab] flowers.
(9) Tom: Listen
Oh, okay. How about a bottle of wine, then? I have a 10-year-old red wine from France.
(10) Jimmy: Listen
Well, Owen is a [vocab word=Buddhist]Buddhist[/vocab]. Buddhists don't drink.
(11) Tom: Listen
Fine. How about a [vocab word=beef]beef[/vocab] package? My uncle has a [vocab word=steak]steak[/vocab] company.
(12) Jimmy: Listen
Owen is a [vocab word=vegetarian]vegetarian[/vocab], remember? Vegetarians don't eat beef.
(13) Tom: Listen
Oh my god! What do I give him then?
(14) Jimmy: Listen
Let me think... I have an idea. Just give him the chocolate, the flowers, the wine, or the beef.
(15) Tom: Listen
But, Owen is an environmentalist, a Buddhist, and a vegetarian. And he doesn't eat chocolates.
(16) Jimmy: Listen
His WIFE is not an environmentalist, a Buddhist, or a vegetarian. And she DOES eat chocolates.
(17) Jimmy: Listen
The poor wife never gets any gifts because Owen is an environmentalist, a Buddhist, and a vegetarian. You give Owen the gift. He gives it to his wife. Then, he gets a big thanks and maybe more.
(18) Tom: Listen
Jimmy, you are a [vocab word=genius]genius[/vocab]!
