The Postman Always Rings...

 

  I was feeling lonely the other day, when I

got home late my wife had left me a note 

saying she had to visit her sick mother

urgently. So when my postman Con arrived 

with some letters I had to sign for, I struck up 

a conversation with him...

- The postman always rings twice Con. You

seen that movie?

- Jack Nicholson, early eighties wasn't it?

- That's right, he was a bit of a bad boy.

- I remember, he was a bad boy!

- Sure you're not like him Con?

- No, I've got a heart!

  Con laughed and went to roar off on his motor

bike...

 Look, I almost forgot, you've got this package 

too!

  Con gave it to me, and was away...

  I went inside with my mail, threw the letters on

the lounge, and ripped the brown paper of the 

package Con had given me. It was a hard to 

open cardboard box, but eventually I managed 

to get the lid of the top. 

  Whatever was in it was beginning to attract

flies in the summer heat. There was was a note

there on top, it  said, " I told you I had a heart 

Tom, in fact I've got two, but I've decided to

return this one to you, I got it out of your wife

when she was leaving your place earlier in the

day. Remember Tom, the postman always rings

twice! "
