Real Estate Boy

by John Schoneboom

Grotty Edna shared a room with Jenkins, an arrangement she found eminently suitable. 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 assortment of highly territorial teddy bears led by a charismatic Bunny.

Grotty Edna was greatly piqued by all of this, naturally. Bravely setting aside any tearfulness, she knew exactly what she must do about it.

She decided to undermine her brother's plans and dedicate herself to his prolonged humiliation.

Beginning by commenting on shortcomings in the real estate photos he was examining -- "isn't the landing a bit titchy?" -- she worked her way up to phoning up prospective sellers and warning them not to trust anything Jenkins says about additional collateral or liens against other properties.

In the end Grotty Edna ended up with her own room, and Jenkins ended up living with a strange Germanic woman whose existence nobody could quite explain, and when they looked back on it all when they were very elderly, they laughed, but then they were always laughing by then.
