Save the Birds
(As I'm leaving the office I pass Lenore coming in later than usual. She has a plastic six pack ring and has put her hand through one of the rings.)
Me: Good morning! You're coming in late.
Lenore: Oh, I know. I lost my keys and just found them so now I'm here.
Me: (pointing to the six pack ring around her wrist) That's a great bracelet. You just need a garbage bag purse to go with it.
L: Huh? Haven't you seen these? It's for soda pop.
Me: No it's not. It's jewelery. Sometimes six of my Diet Pepsis get stuck in them. Such a bother.
(Lenore looks confused.)
Me: I'm kidding. It looks like you got caught in it.
L: No, no, it's just around my wrist for carrying. I can take it off whenever I want. I found it outside and brought it in so I could cut it up and save a bird or two. You know.
Me: Maybe you could catch a six pack of birds?
L: No! That would be awful.
