Hay Fever

It´s spring. The first flowers are growing in the garden.

Sparky says, “We have to do the spring-cleaning.“  Spacy nods and sneezes. “I think I have a cold,“ he says. “But it´s warm and sunny. Maybe you should go to bed,“ Sparky says. After some hours Sparky and Spacy are sitting under a tree and talking about the next evening. “Maybe we can go for a walk with our friends?“ Spacy asks. “What a nice idea and we can cook a meal together,“ Sparky answers. “We can visit a swimming pool too.“ – “There is a concert in town“ ... They have lots of ideas. Suddenly Sparky says, “Unfortunately you are ill, Spacy. You must stay at home and go to bed!“ – “Oh, Sparky, I´m fine! Maybe it was just hay fever. We can go out together this evening!“ – “No, Spacy,“ Sparky grins, „I think you are allergic to cleaning ... because you don‘t like it. Last year you had the same problems on the same day.“ Spacy is shocked. But Sparky laughs: “You can clean the bathroom tomorrow. I left it for you!“ Both  of them start laughing.
