Example 1:Johnny: Hey Daniel, are you really going to compete in a doubleheader? Isn’t your leg hurt?
Daniel: Don’t worry Johnny, I know one competition right after the other might sound crazy, but I can handle it.
Johnny: What if someone sweeps your leg or something?
Daniel: It wouldn’t be the first time. Besides, if I can win both competitions in one day, I’ll get even more famous.
Bill: We should totally give a presentation on History.
Ted: No way dude! How about a presentation on time travel?
Bill: Dude, you thinking what I’m thinking?
Bill & Ted: Presentation Doubleheader! Excellent!
Ted: But Bill, wouldn’t that take a lot of work. I mean one presentation after the other sounds
difficult. A doubleheader will need lots of presenters. Maybe we can dress people up in costumes.
Bill: That’s awesome. And I can have my stepmom and little brother can help us prepare.
Meaning: Two events, presentations, movies, etc. happening one after the other. Usually there’s a short time between both events, but they are both happening the same day.
