Alicia-May banished her husband to the garage one day. Dark engine parts in the kitchen sink had torn their marriage apart, and broken her heart.
Amicable separation ensued for a while, till kitchen implements began to disappear, causing Alicia to beg her erstwhile spouse to investigate. Two mixing bowls, a wooden spoon, three saucepans and a box of tableware being found on the garage workbench, Alicia-May was banished back to the kitchen.
Combining New Year’s resolutions then, the couple removed the wall between garage and house. Now sink and bench live happily together, as do Alicia-May and her wonderful spouse.
