At an outdoor eatery: 

Three women who look like supermodels walk by. I glance at the two young men drinking coffee outdoors, to note their reaction.

An organization I work with did a study for internal use only. One of the facts that came out of years of research ran counter to one man's opinion.

THESE ARE MEDICAL QUESTIONS.
