Man in the Field

Lou was our agent in the field.
He spread out a blanket in the field, sat down, and took a nap.
Unless it was raining. Then he’d nap in his car.
“Is there anything going on?” we’d ask Lou, checking on him.
“One second,” he say, and look around. “Nope. Nothing at all.”
“Good work,” we’d say.
Lou really liked working in the field.
Even though it wasn’t much work at all, really.
At the end of the day, Lou would get up, fold up the blanket, and drive back home.
Unless it was raining. Then he’d just drive home.
