This week, to avoid paying her lodging and spa fees at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa, Anastasia claimed to be Caledonia, Queen of a lost tribe of Scots and hadn’t run up those charges. the Face of Everyman had her Pinkerton Agency dossier and knew for a fact that she had been hatched in a dovecote in Hoboken, New Jersey. Fantasy didn’t pay the rent.
Natasha had spent days binge-streaming epic video productions. She had long ago exhausted both archival Betamax libraries held by the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and the Face of Everyman. She needed fresh air and sunlight before she tackled all thirty seasons of The Simpsons, unexpurgated and complete with such features as out takes and interviews with cast members. The venerable sage believed that she was driven by demons. An exorcism just may be required.
After the big windstorm these three show up at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa seeking asylum and refugee status. They had fled the circus sideshow wintering in the meadow. the Face of Everyman explained that in this magical land they were free to come and go as they pleased. Bewildered by this new sense of freedom, two balked and wanted to return to the circus and train for a new opening act. The venerable sage treated them to a special lunch and they said their goodbyes.
Natasha infrequently emerged from her private residence at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Many were deeply concerned about her isolation and seclusion. Most thought that she was possibly a widow and enduring her year of mourning. She didn’t want their pity. Only the Face of Everyman knew her terrible secret: binge streaming complete seasons of her favorite PBS series.
