Good news and bad

October 5, 2012


Leah phones her husband at work, “Izzy, do you have time for a chat?”

“Sorry, darling, this is not a good time—I’m about to go into a board meeting.”

“But this won’t take long,” Leah says, “I just want to tell you some good news and some bad news.”

“I really haven’t the time,” says Izzy, “so just quickly tell me the good news.”

“Oh all right, then. The air bag on your new Lexus works very well.”
