Trash or Treasure
Iffy and Mimi are standing behind stacks of cardboard boxes.
Iffy says: You’re finally going through these boxes?
Mimi says: Yep. Gonna give it away or trash it.
Iffy says: Great. Well, I’m gonna go run my errands.
Mimi says: Okay. See you later.
A few hours later, Iffy returns. All of the boxes are gone.
Iffy smiles and says: Wow, you already went through all the boxes?
Mimi says: Yes.
Iffy says: And got rid of everything?
Mimi says: Well…
Mimi blurts it out: I decided to keep it all.
Iffy says: Oh, Mimi—
Mimi says: Don’t you dare say it!
Iffy says: I was just gonna say……nice effort?
