NaPoWriMo 2021 Day 18 --


Mr. Air Conditioning Man 

I don't fix 'em if they ain't broke he said 

And he reached up to turn his headlight on 

Peering into the guts of the machine 

Wryly, he glumly said, "yours is a mess  

Your doohickey by the small dingle bash  

expired.   The larger one it is just fine 

You're a Lucky Lass, may I call you that 

I've got one of those right out in my truck 

You can wait for me or follow me out 

Quite heavy, you can help me carry it 

And we can talk going there get to know  

Get to know each other better, maybe . . .  "

If it's same with you I'll get another 

Another quote might help me understand 

But if not okay please leave anyway 

Now please go, my husband is on his way

Interesting write Jim, with some saucy undertones.

Happy Sunday

lol -- it's not cute! You think it's cute, but it's not cute! :) Hope the second opinion was more professional (and cheaper. But it's never cheaper.)

Glad she is getting a second opinion. The first air conditioner man has a broke brain with no integrity. He needs to fix what's broken: HIMSELF! Hope you are doing ok Jim and staying safe. The weather is lovely in our neck of the woods.

Writing what is not said with pin point precision. Great!

The creep vibe on this guy, especially trying to get her out to his van, is off the charts. Hopefully he left without any fuss...

It is like you spoke another wonderful language with those old fashioned descriptive words (I knew) and it was THOROUGHLY entertaining.
