Tirade

Edith could take it no more.  She was fed up with two slackers in the household.  The tipping point was when her son Edsel asked to borrow five dollars so he and his father Mullard could play Putt-Putt Golf at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa award winning nine hole course.  It was difficult, but the Face of Everyman pretended to be asleep during Edith’s hour long tirade.  Then she turned her tongue-lashing towards Edsel’s hapless father.
