The Downpour

Shuffle the cards,” Arlene said. “The rain goddess has blessed us with a downpour so I can’t go outside right now and I’m bored.”

“I can’t,” Jack said, “I’m working.”

“Working?” Arlene said. “You telecommute. You’re probably spending more time blogging or watching YouTube than you are actually working.”

“No I’m not, Arlene,” Jack said. “I’m working hard and I don’t have time to play cards with you.”

“Fine,” Arlene said. “It looks like the rain is ending anyway so I’m going to take the dog out for his walk.”
