I wonder if I might borrow your ladder?
Sure, just as soon as you return the power-drill and the sander.
Oh…didn’t I do that?
Nope. Nor the spanner set…
Damned if I know where they are then…
Well nothin’s leaving this workshop till I get somethin’ back.
Are we gonna fall out over this?
Nope, just sayin’. Them’s the conditions.
Let me think…I could let you have your wife back if you like?
I could stop sleeping with her…she’s a tad insatiable for me anyway. Whadd’ya say?
Take the ladder, I’ll throw in the lawnmower and hedge-cutter too.
I’m sure this is a variation on an old joke but I didn’t dare do ‘dark’ again this week and nothing else sprang to mind. 😦 Thanks again to Rochelle for hosting Friday Fictioneers.
