Jonesy

Post by devokan » Thu Oct 01, 2009 4:30 am

The wooden dummy stared into his dressing room mirror. The bright lights illuminated his spectacular finish and dapper tuxedo.
“What’s the matter, Jonesy?” The magician asked, as he combed his thin mustache.
“Nothing.” Jonesy sighed.
“Come now.” He patted the dummy’s head. “Aren’t we friends?” Jonesy’s eyes looked almost alive in the lights.
“I’m depressed.”
“Why? You have such a cheerful face.” The magician set the comb on the dresser.
“I want a career change. Real estate. Sales. Or maybe I can go to law school.” Jonesy looked up.
The magician smiled and nodded. “I knew this day would come.”
