For Rent

The sign said “For Rent”. Suitcase in hand, Marna marched herself up the front walk and rang the door bell.

A grandmotherly woman answered the door, wiping her hands on her blue apron. “May I help you?”

“I’d like to inquire about renting a place.”

“$50 a month. I prefer cash at the beginning of the month.”

Delighted with her good fortune, Marna immediately fumbled about in her purse for her wallet. “I have $100 cash right now. You want me to sign a lease or something?”

The woman chuckled. “Oh no, that won’t be necessary.”

“When I can move in?”

“Move in?”

Puzzled, Marna stuttered,“M…m… move in t…t…to the room you have for rent?”

“Lands no, child! The $50 a month is for the parking spot in my drive. Rooms go for $500.”
