Precautionary Steps

‘You bought that?’

‘Cool, innit?’

‘Have you lost your mind?’

‘Why? It’s different, but it was a steal.’

‘Yeah, I bet. Because nobody with half an ounce of sense would have paid money for it.’

‘Come on, it’s not that bad. We’ll get a retractable ladder. I’ll install a hoist for heavy bags. And we won’t have to worry about unwanted visitors anymore.’

‘Is that why you bought this place? I can handle unwanted visitors.’

‘Yeah.’

‘Don’t you yeah me. I can.’

‘I know.’

‘Look, next time I won’t invite them in.’

‘No, I know. I made sure of it.’
