Bad news !

by Emma Philipps | Score: 2200

He lights up the TV.  It's the end of the evening news. 
"and Russia, war is declared." 
And the TV says : 
"Buy Cleanclo ! With Cleanclo, all your clothes are clean ! CLEANCLO yeah !"
He switches the TV off. 
War ! 

David is a marketing director. Cleanclo is his idea. But it is so annoying it even annoys him. Wait ! Maybe in 5 minutes the news'll be back. It is 10.00 p.m. on his wristwatch. 
And David waits... 

Shit ! It isn't the same subject as before ! 
"In London, a bank has been robbed ! Mr. Sweeney, police inspector, reckons he doesn't have a clue of what has happened."
Bad news ! Again. This evening is David's bad luck.
Lets switch the TV off again so he won't hear all these bad news... 

"Honey ?"
"Huh ?" 
David wakes up. 
"What's wrong ? You're talking about wars and bank robberies !"
"What time ist it ?" David asks.
"9.30 p.m. ! You've slept from 4.00 p.m. !'
"Oh. So it was just a bad dream..."
David gets up and lights the TV up.
