Ironing Board Cover

After the failed attempt to access an ATM I made my way to the neighborhood supermarket.  I thought a couple donuts would be the proper way to kick off New Year's Day.  I needed eggs and bananas and a new ironing board cover.  Susie the checker looked quizzically at the ironing board cover which as packaged looked like a small pillow.  I said, "It's an ironing board cover."

"I wouldn't've figured that you have to iron," she said.

"It's not something I enjoy doing but I do it," I replied.

As I approached the entrance to my apartment building a raven, perched with his buddies on a limb in the tree above, barked at me like a dog.  A new year and situation normal.
