Will and Ben: Renaissance Men – Second Best Bed

Will & Ben: Renaissance Men – Second Best Bed.

Will: My Second Best Bed? It’s in the wash. Why do you ask, Ben?

Ben: How could your bed be in the wash, Will?

Will: Second Best Bed, Ben.

Ben: Okay. How could your Second Best Bed be in the wash, Will?

Will: When you put your mind to something, Ben, you will find a way to achieve more than you could dream of.

Ben: Yes, Will; but, in the wash!

Will: Ben, Ben, Ben! It is a metaphor. My Second Best Bed is not a bed to lie upon.

Ben: I’ truth?

Will: It is a saying that says not the message that the words combine to form. For example: ‘My Second Best Ben is in the Ale House.’

Ben: You have another friend that calleth himself ‘Ben’, Will?

Will: No, Sirrah. It is thee! When thou are in the Ale House you are not my Best Ben, but my Second Best Ben. Due to the Ale that thou consumest.

Ben: Ah! Now I see; but, about your bed…?

Will: I lied upon it, Ben.
