I was asked to estimate the cost of replacing the windows in a house in a
nice neighborhood outside of town. I couldn't help but notice the lady was
very beautiful and had a smile that won't quit. I wrote an estimate and went
on about my other chores.
After a couple of days the lady called and said I had the job then asked
when I could start. She was real anxious to get her new windows installed.
I explained I had 6 sets of windows to install before hers so it would be at
least two weeks. In about 15 minuets she called back to ask a big favor. She
had one of her old windows raised and couldn't get it to lower. They were
predicting rain so she was afraid her new carpet would be ruined. I agreed
to run by and lower the window for her.
When I got to the lady's house she came to the door dressed in an expensive
pink housecoat. She looked as though she was getting dressed to go to an
upper crust meeting or something. She was looking exceptionally radiant that
morning. I was led through the house to a large bedroom with a king size bed
and bedpost that almost reached the ceiling. The carpet seemed thick enough
to sleep on.
The lady pointed to a window across the room as the one she could not lower.
I walked to the window and lowered it without any problem. Confused as to
why she could not lower it, I turned and to my surprise she was standing
there with the pink housecoat at her feet, she was wearing nothing but a
smile. In other words, Victoria no longer had a secret. She took a small
step toward me and said, "Could I convince you to install my windows next?"
What in the world would you do???
Well you see I don't know what I would do. Just as she said that my alarm
clock went off and woke me up. I did learn one thing though; if you throw an
alarm clock across the room and bounce it off a wall it will not keep good
time anymore. If there was ever a bad time for an alarm clock to go off,
that was it.
How would you explain to your wife why you threw the clock across the
bedroom and busted it to pieces?? I don't think she really believed I
thought I saw a deer in our bedroom.
