A Light Burden

She: “Can I get you anything?”

He: “Yes. I need a post before bedtime.”

She: “Are you sure it can’t wait until tomorrow? It’s already dark outside, and that’s going to make it difficult for me to find a post, dig it up, and carry it to the yard.”

He: “Oh, all right. It’s not like I have a legion of fans like you do, attending your every move. Tomorrow will have to do. And make it a light post, then it won’t be so hard to carry.”

She: “Y’know, that’s a really bright idea. Brilliant, even.”

He: “Not too brilliant, I hope. I’d hate to put the post up and then have the neighbors complain that they can’t get any sleep. That would be ironic.”

  1. Now you want me to iron in the middle of the night? Pft.

  2. A pair of large flying monkey statues (from The Wizard of Oz) overlook the city of Burlington, Vermont.

    Ironically, the monkeys originally sat on top of a now closed water bed store — “Emerald City Waterbeds”.

  3. Sometimes your Significant Other takes you Too Literally, It would be fun though watching Quilly digging up the Post in the Dark.

  4. “legion of fans”
