Stephen had a friend over today and they were eating lunch together. Suddenly his friend, A* asked, “Do you know where my uncle was?”
“Where?” Asked Stephen.
“In jail! For selling Coke!”
“What!” Cried Stephen. “I like coke!”
His friend looked perplexed. “No,” he insisted, “He was selling drugs! Bad drugs!”
Stephen glared at A. “A! You didn’t say drugs. You said coke. Now was it drugs or Coke!?”
A looked very confused and unsure himself about the situation. “Bad drugs!” He repeated.
Stephen shrugged. “Well, you said Coke. And I like Coke.”
That seemed to settle the matter…I decided not to clarify the situation.
