What precedes this:
It's not easy to surprise Aunt Coby, and especially to have some moments of silence afterwards, but Uncle Frits apparently did it.. But these kinds of delicious silences, of course, can never last very long.
“What I didn't ask? And do you need a book for that, for all those things I didn't ask??'
It is undeniably true, Uncle Frits is being pushed into the defense with this question.. 'Sure, sweetheart, 'he just released and he wonders why, like an average rainworm, he can't quickly shoot into the bottom..
“How about the vacuum cleaner, the dustcloth and the cleaning pad?'
Uncle Frits blinks his eyes. “What do you mean that??'
“That's what I mean. All these things I didn't ask. Do that first.!'
