This week the word to explore is “smell”.
Was that you?
Was what me?
No, it wasn’t and I resent the implication that every smell you detect has to be me.
Well, it usually is.
It is not.
Smells in this house and you my love go hand in hand.
It could be a mouse. I’ve been putting out a few baits.
Why are you telling me this?
Could explain the smell is what I’m saying.
The smell is in this room. Very close to you.
Could be a dead one under the bed.
Under the bed?
Yes, it happens.
Not in my house, it doesn’t.
You better have a look then.
I’m not getting under the bed, you look, you put out the baits. You didn’t leave them where the kids might get at them, did you?
I don’t think so.
You don’t think so?
Well, think about it. Paulie is looking poorly, Pete is looking perky and Sarah’s as sour as always.
That’s a relief, they are ok then. So, are you going to check under the bed or not?
Ok, when you say it like that I have no choice, do I?
No, you don’t.
Well, I checked and can you go get the dustpan?
Have him out of here in a jiffy.
Oh my God, under our bed?
Well proves it wasn’t me!
