A Cold Breeze
I had some problems with the windows in my apartment earlier this week, and yesterday someone from my building's maintenance crew finally came around to help me.
He was very friendly and helpful. He fiddled with my windows, and brought in a ladder to go up and inspect the installation of the glass.
I kept yawning while he was fiddling around.
"Long night, eh?" he asked.
"Yeah," I laughed. "I was up late last night watching the Mets playoff game."
A sudden chill came over the room.
"Oh!" he said. After a few minutes of silence, he added, "I'm a Yankees fan."
I tried to backpedal by insisting that I love all of the New York baseball teams.
But I was too late. The damage had been done.
My windows are still not fixed.
Curse my loud mouth!! #
