After lunch, Daphne one of the circus sideshow performers lingered at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  She turned to her host, the Face of Everyman, and asked for a doggy bag for the orts.  The venerable sage graciously complied though he was feeling a bit peckish.  He had hoped to nosh.


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.


The message to the venerable sage from his Broker was so important that it was delivered by Courier.  It read,”Sell your widget stock now!”  By noon the Face of Everyman felt so prosperous that he ordered a plate of Cucumber sandwiches prepared by the kitchen staff of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  They were wickedly good.


Cenizo was searching for Chroma the high wire artist of the new circus forming at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman was unwilling to disclose that rakehell’s whereabouts.  The venerable sage could foretell the disastrous outcome of that relationship.


A heat wave struck the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Anastasiya, thought by many to be the reincarnation of the last Romanov, left the seclusion of her small cote to complain that the air conditioning was not working.  the Face of Everyman duly noted the problem and vowed that someone would be out by Tuesday; Thursday at the latest.

The Bachelorette

the Face of Everyman had noted Roberta’s strange actions.  Mental Health from the clinic at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was asked to do an evaluation.  Turns out that she had dropped a contact lense.   “The Bachelor” casting call and audition ran only two more nights.  She was almost in despair.

Gas Lighting

Esmeralda began to question whether Robb was Gas Lighting their relationship.  She ran a few things by the Face of Everyman:  The gift of a day at the Spa, Those Facebook photos of another Dove, Emails to someone named Chanel.  Robb said that she was imagining things.  The venerable sage often dealt with these types of situations.  He helped her arrive at her own conclusion; all the while trying to remember to renew his subscription to Psychology Today.

Tour Groups

the Face of Everyman regretted allowing tour bus companies the privilege of mid-day stop overs at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Many thought this the lunch stop and descended on the world class buffet table like a swarm of locust.  Quarterly profit information for the Food Service Division was not shared with stockholders.  An asterisk was thought to suffice.
