A bird in the hand…

A while ago my allotment shed was broken into and the doors have been hanging off their hinges ever since and would have probably stayed like that unless my allotment friend Tomato Man hadn’t intervened. He wandered over to my plot today and said: “I’ll do you a deal. I will fix the doors on your shed if you do something for me.” I was a bit apprehensive as Tomato Man can be a bit cheeky and once offered to whip me with a bramble – an offer I declined. “What do you want me to do?” I asked nervously. He explained that there was a dead bird on his plot and could I please remove it because he was scared of it. “I can’t go on my plot with that there and if someone doesn’t take it away I’ll have to go home,” he said. I told him that I didn’t think it was a very good deal from his point of view as I could easily get rid of the dead bird but it would be quite a bit of work to mend the shed but he insisted so I put on some gloves and dealt with the bird, which turned out to be a dead baby bird. I reported that his plot was now free of dead things and repeated that I had definitely done best out of our deal. “You don’t know the service you have done for me,” said Tomato Man. Anyway, my shed is all mended now, which is excellent. “If you find any more dead things you know who to call,” I told TM.
