Distress Flag

May I comfort

"I can offer some tea," said the lady.

Jim paused then spoke. "What was that?"

"Your flag, flying outside. I noticed it. Would you like a cup of tea?"

"Is there a problem with me displaying it?"

Her head shook. "No, my friend. Not with the flag. The way you're showing it."

Jim was not sure if he should be angry or not. "I can show it if I want. I'm not taking it down."

"No. But it's showing purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red. Upside down. That means distress. May I offer a cup of tea?"

Jim nodded, smiling.
