The other day Mrs Bard and I went shopping. It was too wet to cultivate and I had to make up for being a disappointing husband. Having visited several shops carrier bags had been filled so in an attempt to gain approval I suggested I take them back to the car in the multi-storey car park…
Once in the lift I put down the bags,
and sighed a sigh of relief,
The lift was crowded with people,
(and a dog-collared vicar called Keith!)
“This is my floor” at three I said,
people moved away from the door,
Alas there was no sign of the car
and the lift had vacated the floor!
So up the stairs I climbed,
floors 4, 5 and 6,
on each floor the search was the same,
any sign of our car there was nix!
Back I went down to three,
and walked up to the end of the park,
and there by another set of lifts,
our car parked in semi dark!
By the time I’d found Mrs Bard,
“Where on earth have you been?
Can you just take these bags to the car?
This time don’t be so long as you’ve been!”
The moral of the tale is to look for the floor number after you park! Or even go cultivating!
