Two hours later when he got home she was fast asleep in bed.
“Hmmmmm”, he thought.
He figured that, since the next day was Saturday (and she’d be sleeping in) he’d leave early for his appointment at Peter’s Quickie Loan Place (across the street from the Piggly Wiggly), pick up a couple tubs of margarine for the popcorn AND a couple pounds of butter, just in case!
He knew he’d have hell to pay if there wasn’t any butter in the house since she preferred only butter on her toast.
The End ..
