43 Pitching a Tent

“Now, wait.  This pole goes where?”

“Over there, see the diagram?”

“I can’t even read the diagram, so how am I supposed to know what to do?”

“You could wing it?”

“Not happening.  Give me the sheet.”

“. . .”

“Any luck?”

“Take it.  I can’t make any sense of the blasted thing.”

“Okay, so we thread this pole through the slot in the side—”

“And then what?”

“Well, that’s supposed to hold the tent up.”

“Let’s try it.”

“Okay, so that was supposed to work.”

“Are you thinking what I’m thinking?”

“Yes.  A hotel is a great idea.”

James Knox and Naomi Williams.  Original characters.
