“You did WHAT? What kind of a freakin’ idiot are you anyway?”

Shirley reddened in embarrassment.


“What freakin’ moron would put a winning freakin’ lottery ticket down on the freakin’ tissue table?”


Shirley’s lip quivered under my wrath-filled intensity as she tried to explain, “Calm down…we’ll find it. It won’t be that hard. I put it under the yellow tissue stack so that means it must have been packaged in a box of yellow flowers!”

Great news,” I said sarcastically as the UPS truck pulled away from the loading dock. “There’s a yellow rose in Texas…and Pennsylvania…and Arizona. That’ll make it so much easier to find!”
