The Henway Chronicles – Continued – Part Five
I hate listening to people bickering, especially if I’m not one of the bickerers or the bickeree. With Lech Ontario and Daisy Cutter, his moll, bickering was as pointless as a truckload of watermelons. Finally, I couldn’t take it any longer.
“Shut up – both of you. Can’t you wait and do this bickering stuff when you’re at home so I don’t have to listen?” That seemed to work. They both looked at me.
“Awww, shut your pie hole, Henway,” sneered Daisy.
“You dummy,” snapped back Ontario “With Henway it would be ‘shut your German Chocolate Cake hole.’”
“Would not, you Great Ape. The phrase is…”
I reached out and slapped them both just like Moe used to hit Curly and Larry.
