Edith could take it no more. She was fed up with two slackers in the household. The tipping point was when her son Edsel asked to borrow five dollars so he and his father Mullard could play Putt-Putt Golf at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa award winning nine hole course. It was difficult, but the Face of Everyman pretended to be asleep during Edith’s hour long tirade. Then she turned her tongue-lashing towards Edsel’s hapless father.
One day Mullard realized that nothing changed at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. The security camera kept a watchful eye on everyone; day after day. The Spring of Eternal Giving was indeed, just that. the Face of Everyman was always present. His resentment grew the more he thought about his lot in life and the sameness of it all. He was about to share his bitterness with the venerable sage when in the blink of an eye, he forgot what he was about to say. Perhaps the Bar would open early today.
Edith was relentless. She harped all morning about how they had missed the Free Continental Breakfast at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. It seems that Mullard had failed to set the clock correctly for the new time. Hopefully in November he’d get it right. the Face of Everyman offered to enroll them in his “Rise an’ Shine” wake up service.
During the filming of an avant-garde version of Othello at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa the Director test shot several death scenes. Those with the best acting were cast as either Iago or Othello. When Mullard passed out and fell, his life like movements were caught on security footage. He was asked to return for further testing if his doctor approved. the Face of Everyman, of course, always worked for scale.
After a brief period of being comatose Mullard awoke to discover that he had mastered Tibetan Throat Singing. His thunderous tones resonated thru out the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. None could be more surprised than the Face of Everyman for it was one of the few skills that the venerable sage had never mastered.
Mullard tried to appear nonchalant as he wore his new mail order suit. Guests at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa could hardly suppress their tittering. Who wore white after labor Day? the Face of Everyman suggested that the May Day parade would be a great time to wear that suit and dazzle those city slickers.
