APOSTADAY: Can You Dig It?

Here's today's little story!

Can You Dig It?

Jacob and Gary were standing in their client's yard. "We need to have her garden all up set by the time she gets home in 2 hours." Gary glanced at their tools and the unmoved earth, then up at Jacob. "Can you dig it?"

Jacob thought for a moment and remembered last weekend, when Gary invited him over to check out one of his favorite movies, The Warriors. There was a famous scene where all the gangs gathered at a park to a meeting. The highest leader of all the gangs made a proclamation and then asked his followers if they understood his words, by asking, "Can you dig it?"

He smirked and raised his hand to give Gary a high five. Then, in his "hippest" voice, said, "Yeah man, I can dig it!"

Gary looked at him with a quizzical expression. He almost got annoyed by Jacob's seemingly nonchalant attitude about this important job. But, then he also remember his favorite movie. He sighed, shook his head, then pointed at the dirt. "No, man. Can you dig it"

Jacob saw where Gary pointed. "Oh. Yeah man, I can dig it."

I'm sorry if no one gets reference to the movie..its an oldie but goodie...In any case, I hope ya like it.

I haven't seen the movie, but I could easily understand the reference. Nice job making sure your audience is aware of the play on the phrase without affecting the quality of the story.
