The Trace Of A Scout
The butler checked me afresh and, strangely, brought his own weather-cock to the event. No one had the heart for the first several hours to tell him that weather-cocks don't work inside. Finally, when everyone in the room was either done or nearly done filling up on mayonnaise sauce, someone slipped him a note, letting him know.
Like the gold flakes on the the worst example of black armor you have ever seen, tears soon began to flow from his ill-begotten eyes. Shortly thereafter, the tears were coming across the room at high speeds with the aid of very few bullets, if any. Eventually, he lifted off his handkerchief, unzipped his pants and began working on his own personal contribution to the advertising and media industry in Pakistan, if you know what I mean.
