It was not long before my 'The Him' came out looking very flustered. He almost trod on me in his hurry. (I will remember that). He called to the longlegs who cares for the plants and asked for help. That longlegs appeared with a spade while my 'The Him' carried a strange object that was long and looked like it had a big dish on the end. One of them walked up and down sweeping the dish in front and one was digging little holes everywhere. They looked so silly and also hot. At last my 'the Him' called out, “Hurray” and the other one dug and came up with the top of a bottle. I don't know why they were so happy about it.
Anyway, the noise became to great for me and I decided to go in and find something to eat. It's always possible my 'The Him' had left some ham somewhere which would obviously be mine or he wouldn't have left it out. Logic is a fine thing to possess. I was only inside for a few moments when my 'The Him' followed, this time looking glum. I saw him approach my 'The Her' and heard him say. “Sorry my love I couldn't find your ring” only for her to reply “Oh, didn't I say David, I found it in the bathroom. I'd taken it off to wash my hands.”
As I say, Longlegs are funny. Why was he looking outside if it was inside all the time?
An ancient saying: All Superiors must keep their minds on the ham sandwich, and never bother with Longlegs'valueless notions and strange behavior.
quite right Oscar, we are wierd.
