Three mates are walking home, and as they turn the corner of a street, a power line falls down in front of them. The man who checks tickets on a tram for a living did not have time to react, stepped on the power line and died. The second man, who stands out the front of an orchestra for a living, went to help his friend, but when he made contact with his body he was immediately electrocuted. The third man, who works in a bakery, accidentally stepped on the power line, but he did not die. He was a non-conductor.
I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the local shopping center and rolled down the car windows to make sure my Labrador Retriever Pup had fresh air.
She was stretched full-out on the back seat and I wanted to impress upon her that she must remain there.
I walked to the curb backward, pointing my finger at the car and saying emphatically,"Now you stay. Do you hear me?" "Stay! Stay!"
The driver of a nearby car, a pretty young blonde, gave me a strange look and said, "Why don't you just put it in 'Park'?"
