Its a bright sunny morning on the construction site of the new Contention City Arts Centre, where Colin Conifer rolls up in his 4wd ute loaded to the brim with toolboxes. He stops, jumps out grabs two toolboxes and makes his way over to the lift, hops in, closes the wire mesh sliding door, pokes the up button with his finger for the third level. With a loud whine of the ancient electric motor the lift slowly rises until it stops with a jolt at the third level. Colin decamps and starts preparing for work. First job on the cards is to cut a piece of timber. Rummaging around in one of his toolboxes for a handsaw, which is nowhere to be seen, when it dawns on him he's left it in the 4wd ute. What a pain i'll have to go all the way back down to the ground, unless he mumbles.
Knowing that Daniel Dandelion is working on the dusty ground below, Colin wanders over to the safety rail, takes a gander and spots Daniel's yellow hardhat. Screaming at the top of his lungs at Daniel, its no use because of all the racket going on he can't be heard. Scanning the floor around him he claps eyes on a tiny piece of timber, lobs it at Daniel and it strikes him fair and square on his yellow hardhat which grabs Daniel's attention. Looking up Daniel catches on that Colin is using Sign Language.
First Colin points to his eye meaning "I", then points to his knee meaning "NEED", then moves his hand back and forth in a sawing motion meaning "SAW".
Understanding that Colin needs a handsaw, Daniel drops his jeans, makes a fist, lowers it to his groin area and gives the universal sign of onanism to let Colin know he understands the message. Taking the message the wrong way Colin strides across to the lift, pokes the ground floor button, when he reaches the ground floor with a jolt, he sprints at a cracking pace toward Daniel, shirt fronts him and they both fall heavily to the dusty ground with Colin on top and he screams, What's the big idea calling me that all i needed was was a handsaw, What've you got to say for yourself?.
I know you want a handsaw, i was telling you i'm "COMING", replies Daniel.
Well that's alright then, since i'm down here i'll get the damned handsaw myself.
What ever floats ya boat cobber.
