The question taunted Paul as he pulled back from the edge.
“No,” Paul retorted. “I’d like to see YOU try, Bill!”
“Oh, I will! Don’t you worry about that!” Bill peeped over the edge himself. “I still say your chicken.”
Paul sat still and considered his options. The space to the other side seemed so far away. How would they be able to do it?
“We have to look out for Her Ladyship, though.” Bill said, ever being practical. “But I can handle her.”
“I’ll bet you next week’s chocolate pudding that you can’t!” Paul retorted.
“Nah, we can get around that old battle axe…Cheese it! Someone’s comin’!”
Bill and Paul sat back in their chairs and tried to act natural. The custodian walked by jingling his keys.
“Staying out of trouble, boys?” He asked.
“Yes, sir!” Bill answered, winking dryly.
Paul breathed a sigh of relief when the custodian went around the corner.
“I don’t know about this.” He said.
“I told you, you were chicken!”
“Are too! Cluckcluckcluckcluck!”
“So how do you plan on doing this?”
“We are just gonna go right on in like we own the place!”
“If we get caught, we’ll be in so much trouble!”
“Such a panty waist!” Bill opened the door and went in.
Twice-Young Nursing Home
Shift Change Communications Book:
At 10:30 pm, Residents Paul Johnson and Bill Goodnight found in the kitchen raiding the refrigerator for leftover coconut cream pie. They had stolen the key from Nurse Lovelady and used their wheelchairs as props to keep the kitchen door closed. While trying to navigate the distance from the door to the refrigerator, Paul Johnson lost his balance. In the attempt to brace himself, he pulled Bill Goodnight down with him. EMS has advised that they have only suffered from minor exposure to the cold floor and should recover quickly.
Disciplinary actions include banning from this week’s movie night and no chocolate pudding.
