Major Bum Cheque
By Bonnie Jarvis-Lowe
One day I dropped into “Between the Pages” to pick up a book I planned to buy. The lady wasn’t there, but the young man in question was in charge it seemed, handling the cash register like a pro. I paid for my purchase with a cheque as I always did and left to go home.
I immediately turned around and drove back to “Between the Pages,” wondering what in the world could be wrong with my cheque. Imagine my embarrassment when the young man passed me my cheque and there in my very own bold print I saw that I had made it payable to “Between the Sheets!”
Thanks Dr. Freud, wherever you are!
