Origami by another name

I stayed in the car while Husband went into the shop to get some bread. When he returned I said, 'I've been watching a magpie eat a dead rat on the road. I think it's a rat but it may be a squirrel that's lost its tail.'
Husband said, 'You need to work on your conversational skills.'
'Oh. Well, in between that I've been folding toffee papers. It's strangely satisfying seeing how neatly and small you can fold them.'

I sensed Husband had stopped listening.

Left to your own devices with little to keep your mind occupied - what did he expect? This is too funny!

Irate wife to husband "You haven't even been listening to what I say!"

Husband to wife "What an agressive way to start a conversation!"

Magpies clear up after Twelfth Night, too?
