Hero and Leander

Hero has sent Leander searching the vast grounds of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa for soft nesting materials.  the face of Everyman tries to warn Leander that Neptune is lurking to attack him.  The venerable sage is able to distract the Royal Denizen of the Deep just long enough for Leander to escape.  Upon arriving home he presents his find to Hero, his lovely sweetheart, and burst into song: “Be it ever so humble, there is no place like home.”  Curtain closes.  The Resort guests rise to a standing ovation for this ground breaking re-telling of an ancient classic.

Haiku

The annual Writer’s Conference at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa took a brief mid-morning break.  the Face of Everyman was astonished to overhear that they were not free from the rapid fire prompts of the conference setting but must converse solely in the 5-7-5 structure of Haiku, responses must be in Latin, Classical Greek or Esperanto.  The venerable sage wept as he recalled his high times on the isle of Mykonos.

Water Polo

the Face of Everyman always found it difficult to organize team sports at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Some members took to the water easily; others had to be coaxed.  The venerable sage found it difficult to match player’s skills to positions; let alone getting them to tread water.  A clutch of ducklings would be so easy to train.  Perhaps even win the pennant.

Friday Frolics

Try outs for the upcoming Friday Frolics variety show slated for the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa were cut short yesterday when an area wide power outage occurred.  The massive pumps supplying the Spring of Eternal Giving ceased to operate.  the Face of Everyman rescheduled the soft shoe act of Donny and Marie for 3PM if power was restored.  The show must go on.

Locker Room Talk

There was always a lot of locker room talk on Saturday mornings when the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Running Club completed their runs and hit the spa.  Blueberry pancakes topped the list of topics; while Maple syrup ran a close second.  the Face of Everyman tried to recall if he had ordered enough maple syrup from Vermont.  It was his favorite too.

Grand Jury

The Grand Jury was quick to indict Panther aka Lucy for the attempted murder of Mullard, a former grounds keeper for the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman testified that Panther was a known vagrant and a frequent intruder.  The kindle ol’ pensioner may be directed by Court Order to “Bell” the beast.

Conspiracy

the Face of Everyman was shocked to overhear a conversation between two influential members of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and  Spa planning commission.  The scheme was to drain the pool to prevent water fowl from getting H1B visas for temporary residency.

Tie-Dye

Cosmos regretted trying to restart his former tie-dye business.   The concierge at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa had agreed to mention his salon.  But now it was obvious to him that cheap water based dyes would not lead to wealth and fame.  the Face of Everyman suggested that his left over dyes be used for face painting at the County Fair.  Cosmos hoped that it would all wash off before he was subject to too much public ridicule.

Dating

Velvet wasn’t sure which of these two guys she was meeting for her luncheon date at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Neither of them resembled their photos on the web site, AvianHarmony dot com.  Which one was Hacker?   Which was CEO?  the Face of Everyman sensed her dilemma.  The venerable sage recommended the Cobb salad with bacon bits and tuna substituting for the chicken and chopped eggs.
