A Source of Contention
Stan was out of town for the weekend, so Brenda decided to work on cleaning out the garage while he was gone. It was a source of contention between them, their overstuffed garage. It’s not that Stan thought all those things were Brenda’s, he just thought all the junk was hers and the good stuff was his.
Brenda piled like things with like, ending up with several such heaps: broken flashlights, cracked Igloo coolers, busted hummingbird feeders, and paint brushes.
So all the junk is mine? Brenda scoffed as she hung all of Stan’s paint brushes from the garage ceiling.
