“I don’t see your name on this shovel, pal,” Zeke replied. “So your claim to ownership of this shovel means zilch to me.”
“It’s abundantly clear that the shovel belongs to me,” Craig said.
“Oh yeah?” Zeke said, “how are you going to prove it’s yours?”
“Turn it over and look at the back of the blade,” Craig said. “I soldered my initials on it.”
Zeke looked at the back of the blade and saw Craig’s initials. “Fine,” he said. “Take your damn shovel, you old coot. It’s as much of an antique as you are, anyway.”
“Don’t be so glum, Zeke,” Craig said. “You can borrow it from me if you really need it.”
