I was all sweaty after I finished mowing the lawn on this sweltering day and I opened the screen door to the patio to collect my pay. How awesome, Mrs. Robinson had left me a cold glass of ice tea, just what I need to cool down a bit. I yelled out, “I put the mower away and this iced tea has hit the spot”. I heard a voice, “Is that you Billy?”, to which I responded, “yes, I am all done.” Mrs Robinson called out, “Coming”, and I heard her footsteps coming down the stairs.
Mrs Robinson said, “Come inside Billy, so I can pay you, my husband said that I should give you twenty five dollars, does that sound right?” I said, “Yes that is the price that we agreed on and it is generous and I want to thank you for leaving me the iced tea, ah I hope that was for me.” Mrs Robinson said, “Sure that was for you and I figured that you could use it, because it is so hot out today. I am going to give thirty five dollars for your fine efforts, but I do need a favor from you.” I said, “I am at your service, what do you need?” She turned around and said, “My zipper is stuck, are you any good with these?” I smiled at her and said, “That all depends on what direction it is going, up or down and whether or not your husband is home.”
