Looks like everyone's there now...

The hypochondriac Scotsman had a (wee cough), so he had a (week off)

I actually composed this puzzle a couple of years or so ago. A colleague at work made some comment about having a week off, and I realised that there were a couple of ways of interpreting what he said.
