At long last the Face of Everyman had agreed to mediate disputes between the pigeons and the squirrels. A new sense of peace embraced the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Simply put: Nuts and dried fruit were for the squirrels while millet seed and cracked corn were for the pigeons. Deer, small birds and mice were not covered under this hastily ratified treaty.
The Tent Revival folks had setup Winter quarters in the big meadow not far from the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Where ever Pastor Bob found a gathering he felt compelled to preach. the Face of Everyman thought Bob channeled Elmer Gantry and Billy Sunday with just a hint of Aimee Semple McPherson. When all the cracked corn was eaten, the crowd just seemed to wander off.
The menu on the chalk board clearly stated that Orts were the only item being served. The kitchen and wait staff at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa were busy preparing for New Years Eve festivities. None the less, out of the corner of his eye, the Face of Everyman spotted two unhappy customers approaching. His otherwise nimble mind tried to come up with something, some appeasement. Following heated words, the venerable sage reluctantly presented each with complementary coupons, good for one Bloody Mary tomorrow morning between 6 and 10 AM.
