“Madam, Too Many Words”

We were working together in the garden, and I was explaining what I wanted done with the bougainvilla starts I had collected from various colored shrubs on the compound. It doesn’t take much to get bougainvilla going, but you have to do it right.

When I was done explaining, I said “was that clear? do you understand?”

He shook his head sadly and said “Madam, too many words.”
