Can I Ask You A Strange Question?

Can I Ask You A Strange Question?

I’ll get to the question in a moment but first picture this. You’re on your way back from the strange shop round the corner where the man tells you that your card has been declined when it hasn’t (every single time *sigh*), when you spot a beautiful piece of furniture in someones front garden. You get closer and you see another item nestling next to it and you visibly swoon. What to do, what to do? Well you wait until your husband has finished work and make him take you back.Walk through the gate of the property with the pretty furniture outside. Take deep breath. Knock on door. Knock a little louder. Lady comes to the door* -Hello?Thrifty – Hello, sorry to bother you. Can I ask you a strange question?.Thrifty – Are you throwing that furniture out? *points at furniture* – Yes my son has bought me all new¬† – Would it be very cheeky to ask it we could have some of it? – Take it, take it! It will save me a trip to the skip.Thrifty – Thank you, thank you, thank you – You are very welcomeThrifty – Oi Mr Thrifty get the car and get lifting!If you don’t ask, you don’t get!Look what we got. For free! They’re a little worse for wear having been stored in a garden but nothing a bit of a wipe down, sanding and a coat of paint won’t fix. I will of course be baking a cake, which I will pop round to her on Monday.So roll on a dry day and I shall be cracking open the paint tins. Stay tuned for the makeover.,The Thrifty *Lady with furniture in her garden
