Rolling out the red carpet

I rounded a bend in a quiet lane and found him sweeping studiously. The rolled up red carpet seemed a bit random in a residential neighborhood.

“What are you doing?” I asked.

“Cleaning.” he replied with a blank look on his face.

“Why? You’ve an important VIP event today?” I quipped.

Without a beat, he replied, “Heard you were coming.”

And he kept sweeping.
