Short story

knock on the door

One evening hoping for a quiet night in,
There was a knock on the door. My other half shouted,
I'll get it". Me thinking it could be one of those
Bible bashers waited a while. Went to the front door;
Seeing a clipboard in his hands said, WHAT DO YOU
WANT?". He replied nervously, " We were wondering
how much do you drink on a weekly basis". Being I was
annoyed at the impertinence of the question said.
" Not that it's anything to do with you, If I do drink
It's no more than a couple of pints a week".
He replied, " Thanks in that case we won't be
calling on you again". As he scurried off, I shouted.
Fine by me". As the wife closed the door she
Turned and glared at me, As she said.
"He was talking about milk"!
