Clean As A Whistle
LJ wanted to go fishing, he’d been planning on going with Danny and Tom for a while now, and they finally had a free weekend, so he was taking the opportunity to spend some time out on the water.
However, his wife, Naomi, was determined not to let him go, until he cleaned up his desk. It was the messiest she’d ever seen it. Normally LJ was exceptionally tidy, being a marine he rarely let anything ever get that messy, he was almost OCD in how he tidied up after himself. But, due to the huge workload they’d have to deal with recently, he hadn’t been as tidy as normal, and it was beginning to annoy Naomi. So he told him in no uncertain terms that unless he tidied up his desk he wouldn’t be going fishing that afternoon.
Sighing to himself, LJ sat down to tidy up, he had to admit that it was far more messy than he would ever let it get normally. And once he started, he soon wanted it completely clear.
An hour later, Naomi came and found him, “wow, look at your desk,” she said surprised, it was almost unrecognisable as the same desk.
“Clean as a whistle, huh?” LJ said, not looking up from the stack of papers he was sorting through.
“Yeah, it’s a huge improvement,” Naomi said, still shocked.
“Can I go fishing now?” he found her gaze, smirking at her. She grinned back and nodded.
