On How Not To Ask The Question

(for E)

Did you leave the tap running/ the light on?

I should have put the question another way.

Why did you leave the...?

For how long did you leave the...?

Instead I gave you a ball in the net, my side

An unforced error

A drop shot from behind the baseline

A double fault

A highlight reel overhead winner from no man's land

And you gave your racket the high-five

Game    Set    Match
