A flight of young toughs, right out of Juvie, hit the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. It was a crime scene for five minutes as they threshed about seeking to damage whatever they could. the Face of Everyman had never encountered such rowdy behavior since he watched “Rumble Fish” on late night TV. These fledglings were Hells Angels wannabes.
The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa has become the target of the Hotel & Innkeepers bureaucracy. Weekly, inspectors from some agency or another descends on the Resort to assess and evaluate. the Face of Everyman began expect the beginnings of a hostile takeover and tried to warn Corporate. In the end Foggy Bottoms was downgraded to: “A A +”. The venerable sage agreed to add signage in Esperanto and double the amount of berries served at Brunch. He would be re-inspected for compliance.
The bus from the orphanage dropped off Daphne for her first day at the Montetorkie School. the Face of Everyman welcomed her to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and gave her words of encouragement to help her on this day of new beginnings. His own first day had been chaotic; inside a lava tube at the base of a volcano. Chalk hadn’t been invented yet and the heat had been almost unbearable.
the Face of Everyman didn’t know what to believe. These two jokers arrive at the crack of dawn claiming to be auditors sent by Corporate to check the books of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. These two knew their stuff. The invoice for two hundred bit coin worth of illegal fireworks was the their first discovery. The audit went down hill from there. Once again the venerable sage felt his Golden Handshake slipping from his grasp. To say nothing of his renown grand 4th of July fireworks display.
Elizabeth wasn’t sure she liked the idea of Rocky watching her bathe. But she shrugged it off as this was a public area in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. In Wildlife Behavior 101 she had learned to just turn your back. Hopefully the rodent would return to gorging himself; besides the Face of Everyman was alert for once and watching out for her.
Elizabeth could hardly wait for classes at the Montetorkie school to be over. By sundown today she will have given report cards to all of her students and cleaned out her desk. There was a popular new bar tender at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Lounge. Perhaps Rob will join her for a few Long Island Iced Teas. the Face of Everyman hoped that the Rum Runners shipment of booze showed up soon. Elizabeth always drank as though she had a real thirst to quench.
