Real Estate Boy

by John Schoneboom

Grotty Edna shared a room with Jenkins, an arrangement with which she had neither qualms nor arguments. Jenkins, for his part, seemed to find the situation insufferable in the extreme. Not only did he constantly express his strong preference for his own room, he rarely acknowledged Edna at all, claiming instead that his roommates included an army of beings who would inhabit the socks he routinely tossed down from the upper bunk at bedtime.

Grotty Edna's feelings were hurt by all of this, naturally. Her injuries notwithstanding, she knew exactly what she must do about it.

She decided to destroy her brother's plans and see to it that he would never embarrass her again.

Beginning by commenting on shortcomings in the real estate photos he was examining -- "is that a bedroom or a closet?" -- she worked her way up to phoning up prospective sellers and warning them about her brother's unpleasant eating habits.

In the end Jenkins got his room, no thanks to his sister, and when they looked back on it all when they were very elderly, they remembered nothing.
