535. Angus: thief

535thief

Angus knew he had been caught red-handed. He was still holding the ten-dollar note and his mother’s purse when she walked into the room.

“What are you doing with my purse?” asked his mother.

I’m just returning the ten-dollar note I borrowed off you last week,” said Angus. He was a quick thinker, was our Angus.

“Just keep it,” said his mother.

So he did.

His quick-witted luck didn’t last for long however; only for a couple of years. Now that he’s older, and better at it, he finds being a professional thief bloody hard work.

I delight in having my dull life coloured by your intelligent perceptions, your wit, and your vivacity.
