Bona Fide Begging

Life, liberty and...
And?
No-no-no.
Let there be liberty...
Or,
No-no-no-no!
If I have only one life...
To live.
That doesn't sound right either.

'What is it that you are trying to say? '

I have an interview for a job tomorrow.
And I want to appear as patriotic as possible.

'That's easy.
Do what I did.
And it was only for a part time job! '

What did you do?

'I handed the interviewer my resume.
And as she was going over it.
I pulled out a bottle of sleeping pills.
And threatened to take my life! '

Noooo...?

'Yes!
She wasn't convinced.
I'm glad of that.
Because the bottle was filled with TIC TACs.'

So what happened next?

'BEGGING.
It works!
Bona fide begging...
Works! '
Lawrence S. Pertillar
