floor

Cut and dried

A policeman called into the base on his radio, “I’ve got a firearm death, Sarge. A little old lady shot her husband for stepping on the floor she’d just mopped.”

“Geez. Ah, okay. I’ll arrange for the body to be collected. Bring her in, and we’ll get a statement.”

“Right. Might take some time.”

“Why?”

“The floor’s still wet.”
