Rant and Rave

It wasn’t like Melonie to whine or grouse but she had a dislike for the Snowbirds who went off somewhere during the Winter then returned to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa taking over some of the best nesting sites without so much as asking.  the Face of Everyman suggested that she submit a “rant” to the village newspaper’s rant & rave column.  She’d feel much better if she did.

Belly Dancing

Nadia was a contestant in the annual Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Tribal Fusion and Belly Dancing Contest.  Most of her costume she created herself and was of her own design.  Her scarves, jewelry and bronze cymbals she rented from the Face of Everyman.  To avoid conflict the venerable sage recused himself from voting when pecuniary matters were involved.  Nadia won the Regionals and went on to State.


Ernie had never heard the word doppelganger.  But whoever that fuzzy looking guy next to him was, sure as shooten’ looked exactly like him.  Apparitions are common in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman tried to explain the mystery of such occurrences.  Ernie just wanted him gone.

Racing Handicap

It was billed as the first annual Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Aerial Races.  The next three contests were lined up at the starting position.  the Face of Everyman was about to start his stopwatch and fire the toy cap gun starting pistol.  However, the State Racing Steward intervened.  The humming bird had not been given the appropriate weights and handicap.  The venerable sage assured the official that a unique pari-mutuel algorithm would satisfy the spirit of the regulation.  After much wrangling and haggling the races were rescheduled for the 4th of July.


When the Montetorkie School closed for three days to observe President’s Day this little Abecedarian felt left out.  He, of the many students at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa, was eager to return to the classroom.  Finger painting brought out his creative skills.  the Face of Everyman had assured his parents that his best work would be displayed in the posh arcade.  Somehow Tuesday would take forever to get here.


Little Benji was confident that he knew everything he needed to know to become a successful adult.  After all, he had read that charming book: “All I Really Need to Know . . .”    From: Share to Look; all sixteen points were easy to remember and apply in daily life.  That is, until his first encounter with The Spring of Eternal Giving.  Despite the total surprise at being given a morning greeting by talking water; he recovered quickly and responded courteously.  Such harmony is frequent in the bucolic Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman looked pleased.


Carlisle was unsure about his new FitBit activity tracker.  He was positive that he had followed the instructions.  the Face of Everyman suggested that he make one tour of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and return.  The little guy had accumulated a bazillion steps within five minutes.  The venerable sage was at a loss as to what to do next.
