A thief, madam? No, you misinterpret. I am an artist. Here are your purse, your keys. The look on your face, my lady, is my masterpiece.
Clever – the story an the thief’s excuse.
The language places me in another century. I like that.
Glad you guys liked it! This was a tough one to pare down, to fit in all the details and really make each word do extra work. I think it turned out to communicate what I wanted it to, though, and I’m pleased with it and really glad to see it here.
I LOVED this one. Very funny. Great language and tone.
