man on tall ladder

man on tall ladder
sealing seams in wall hole --
sound of can dropping

I'm walking by a man in a white T-shirt and blue jeans at the top of a tall green ladder, which is leaning against a red wall bordered with blue. He seems to be working on an opening in the wall above the door that will probably house an air conditioner. Suddenly, a white canister falls to the pavement, squirting white caulk. The man turns around and scowls. I can just hear him thinking, "Shoot! It's a long ways down to pick up that blasted can!"
