may I help you sir?
yes, I'm looking for a gift for my girlfriend
very good. what did you have in mind?
oh, something different. not the usual earrings, etc
well, we have quite a selection of unique items
I can see that. how much for that thing over there?
oh, it's on sale this week, for only $3000 US
that's a little steep, don't you think?
it's a rare piece, sir. you won't find it anywhere
isn't it an 80 gallon oil drum?
yes, but the workmanship is exquisite
will you take $2,000.00 for it?
oh, I couldn't let it go for less than $2,750
I'll give you $2,400. cash
you drive a hard bargain, sir. it's yours
think she'll like it?
it will be an unexpected treasure, I'm sure
I hope so
and she can always exchange it for another color
but they're all black and white
and shades of grey, sir. there's a difference
of course
shall I wrap it up, then?
no, I think I'll wear it home
very good sir

he, in an oil drum one can make fire, right?
i mean, in an empty one, of course!
and then one could fry sausage
and one could bring the beer.
yes, you are right: this is really a special gift for a girlfriend!
