Answer (in white):

Mr. Jim Measurement was going to take his wife, Milly, to dinner for her birthday, although Milly thought she really shouldn't have to 'weight (wait)' till her birthday to be taken out. However, she was very excited, and he had sent her a candy 'gram', which added to her excitement. Milly didn't get out much, though sometimes 'millimeter (Milly met her)'' sister for lunch.
Unfortunately, that afternoon Jim was overheard screaming, "Oh, 'metric (my trick)' knee is bothering me again! I hope I can 'meter (meet her)' later. Otherwise, I will have to disappoint my wife." 'decimeter (does he meet her)' often, wondered the staff.
Everyone knew Jim and Milly to be real 'liters (leaders?)'. The 'volume' of things those two could get done in a day was unbelievable. They really deserved a night out.
