Watching Television (standard:humor, 169 words)

A satire of almost everything I could think of.
 



Watching Television 

Hello.  How are you?  I don't know how that came to be the opening of a
telephone conversation, but there it is.  Like women having only one 
name anymore - you yell,”Betty,” and four people answer, “What do you 
want?”  Or women being named after pleasant months (April, May, or 
June, or Spring), or attributes (Merry, Charity, or Melody).  I guess 
it just worked out that way. 

Last night was a dark and stormy night.  I was half-dozing while
watching my favorite television program (something to do with singing 
zebras who solve crimes). Suddenly I heard clanking and there was a 
rather elderly gentleman standing in front of my television.  I didn't 
hear him come in, and there was no icy draft announcing that the door 
had been opened. 

“Ebenezer Scrooge!” he demanded. 

“No.  Don Oman.” 

He consulted a small scrap of paper, muttered, “Damn.  Wrong address,”
and stalked out the door without bothering to open it.  I immediately 
got rid of all my cooking wine, Sherry.
