“Did you see the crane fall at the marina?”
“A crane fell in the marina? No! I haven’t heard of it. Oh my gosh!”
“Yeah, it was sort of sad. Funny too.”
“Funny??!!! How could you see funny on such a tragedy?! A crane falling is a huge deal! Did anyone got hurt?”
“Hurt??? Heck no! Well, maybe the crane, but it didn’t really look like… Pretty sturdy guy.”
“Are you serious? Not only you think it’s funny, but now you make jokes?”
“What are you talking about? It was just a bird falling after a bad take off flight. No big deal. It was not even flying high. No one was around it. Why does this need to be so tragic for you?”
“Wait a minute… A bird? A crane bird?”
“Yes. You know… Big thin legs, long curvy neck…”
“Oh! Hehe. Oops. Sorry, I thought it was a construction crane…”

Oh, you mean “that” crane. 😉
Yeah. How come you could have thought of something else… 😉
Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
LOL! You had me too! I couldn’t figure out if it was a bird or a construction crane! Great story!
Thanks! Couldn’t resist the joke. Glad it worked.
Haha, nicely done 🙂
A mistake anyone might make..
True! And they did it. 😉 Thanks for stopping by.
Ha ha ha ha ha. So much fun 🙂
Thanks. Happy to bring some fun to you.
A lovely clever take.
Thanks very much.
My wife and I have out-of-synch conversations like this all the time. Good story.
Guess we all do sometimes. Same between me and hubby and kids… Thanks.
Funny mistake and well written. I like it was all written in dialogue.
Thanks. I never know how well people will take a only-dialogue story. Glad you liked it.
Very funny. I can see having a conversation like that with my wife. 🙂
Thanks. Sometimes happens to me too… ;o)
Good one Etol. I was thinking about that before I wrote my story too. Great use of homophones, I think that’s what they are called.
Thanks, Mandibelle. 😉
Well, those words get the better of us. I thought it was a construction crane as well. Nice one 🙂
