Stair Carpet

Three men turned up for work yesterday morning; by lunchtime two of them had been laid low- either by the flu or the home-made pickle in the sandwiches they'd brought with them.

Which left just Karl.

Jonathan had started stripping the stair-carpet before retiring hurt. We could hardly leave the job part done and Karl had other, more skilled things to be getting on with, so I did it. 

Stripping stair carpet sounds easy, but when there's a stair-lift bolted to the stairs it becomes really fiddly and time-consuming.

So did he choke her? Did he object to her breastfeeding their kid because those were "his" breasts?

I'll never hear Yesterday again without asking myself those questions.

A carefully-managed reputation turns to dust.
