A Light Love Story

What a fine picturesque day for an estate auction, thought Jack. Endless blue skies blending in peaceful harmony with an outdoor sale. Early customers, like him, perusing over items in anticipation to buy with either a raised hand or nod of their head. Jack found tools he wanted.

The sale moved to the tables and Jack noticed his wife standing amid the bidders. Oh, no…someone please intercept her bid, we already have too many at home, he thought.

“SOLD! Entire contents to the lady in red!”

Jack said, “Babe, you’re the only light I need. Why fifty more lamps?”
