Scalper

Post by DoctorBanzai » Tue Apr 02, 2013 12:36 am

“Holy crap,” Tina yelled out, excited. She jumped up from the sofa, so full of energy that she could not contain it. “How did you get them? The concert’s been sold out for weeks and weeks.”

“Scalper,” I answered mater-of-factly. “Not too much mark-up either.”

“Really?” she plopped herself down in my lap, wrapping her arms around my neck and pulling me close to her. “I’m so excited! I can’t wait!”

“I thought you’d like them,” I smiled. “Happy Birthday.”

“I love you,” she answered. “Hold on,” she released my neck and looked at me, confused. “What’s with the hat?”

Hahaha! I was afraid you were going to be too obvious about the punchline, but you delivered it perfectly.
