‘What’s in that one?’ he asked.
‘Strawberry jam’ she said.
There were dozens of jars.
‘And that one?’
After her husband departed, she started making stuff; marmalade, chutney, and the like.
‘That one looks interesting’ he said.
‘Inspector’ she said, wishing to change the subject. ‘I’m sure you’re not here to discuss my culinary skills’.
‘Absolutely’’ he said. ‘We’re somewhat concerned about the disappearance of your husband. I have a few questions for you’.
After the inspector left she picked up the ‘interesting’ jar.
‘You broke my heart, so I helped myself to yours’ she muttered. ‘You have no use for it now’
