Leaves and Garbage

Ed finished the front yard and driveway, and put the power blower back into the garage. Edna watched from the bay window, shaking her head.

Two days later leaves were everywhere, and Ed was at it again.

“It’s a losing proposition,” Edna told him. “They’re just going to come back.”

“No, Edna. Those leaves are not coming back. These are new leaves.”

Edna laughed. “What difference does it make? You’ll have to do it all over again.”

The following Monday morning Edna reminded Ed to take out the garbage.

“Why bother?” Ed mocked. “There’ll just be more garbage next week.”
