     It wasn't just any snore!

Storyline: Jane didn't get a good night's sleep because she was kept awake by John's snoring.  As a result, she looks fairly tired.  Mary suggests that Jane buy earplugs so that she can sleep better.
Mary: Jane you look bushed. Didn't you get a good night's sleep?
Jane: Nope. John kept me awake all last night.
Mary: Oh!?
Jane: I don't know why. John rarely snores, but last night he really started sawing some logs! And it wasn't just any snore. It was more like a herd of elephants running through the room!
Mary: My grandpa used to do the same thing. Sometimes he would even wake himself up. He snored so loud! I always thought it was funny.
Jane: Well, I'm certainly not laughing about John. I don't think I can take another night like that again.
Mary: Have you considered buying some earplugs?
Jane: You bet! In fact, I'm going to buy some at lunch!
