Lupe: Why are you lying on the couch with the lights out? Oh, you poor thing. Do you have a headache?
Eiji: Yes, a very bad one. My head is throbbing.
Lupe: Why don’t I get you some hot tea? That always helps me when I have a pounding headache.
Eiji: No, I just want to lie here quietly.
Lupe: I know that when I have a tension headache, it always eases the pain when someone massages my neck and shoulders. Would you like that?
Eiji: No, I don’t think it’s a tension headache. It came on suddenly.
Lupe: Then it’s not a sinus headache either? Are you feeling pain around your cheekbones?
Eiji: No, it’s not a sinus headache. I feel a little nauseous actually.
Lupe: Ah, then it must be a migraine. That explains the dark room and the need for quiet. I know the perfect cure for a migraine.
Eiji: Me, too, but I don’t have it here.
Lupe: I’d be happy to get it for you.
Eiji: Great. The only place that stocks it is in the next town.
Lupe: But that’s over two hours away.
Eiji: If it’s too much trouble . . .
Lupe: No, no, I’ll go. But how will you manage while I’m gone?
Eiji: I’ll just have to find a way to muddle through.
