High Winds

Cheeky brought the bad news that high winds were expected to hit the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa within the hour.  To the Face of Everyman that meant cancelling another day of filming his epic: “The Battle of Thermopylae”.  Perhaps he should have sold the script to NETFLIX when he had the chance.

Squirrel Cage

Cheeky thought the Face of Everyman was his secret Santa.  He whispered in the ear of the venerable sage the laundry list of his desires to find under the tree on Christmas morning.  First off, a squirrel cage exercise unit.  The one at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Fitness Center was too small and squeaked.  Next, no more Macadamia nuts in the stockings unless they were shelled. Next, . . .


Cheeky wasn’t sure that any savings plan was right for him.  The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa had a bank of questionable repute run by the Concierge from his desk in the lobby.  Vague rules and posted signs that read, “Free Checking 20% off” were troubling to a thrifty saver.  Seen above is young Cheeky heeding the advice of the Face of Everyman that he “squirrel away” a little bit each day.  Those Cabana Huts hold a remarkable amount of nuts.


As the hostile pigeons closed in on Cheeky he recalled a defensive move he had learned here at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Dojo.  The renown Sensei, the Face of Everyman, had instructed his pupils: “if all else fails, do the unexpected.”  Cheeky took the Pepe le Pew stance and held the mob at bay long enough to stuff his cheeks.


No one at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was aware of how the bond between Cheeky and the Face of Everyman had been forged.  Suffice it to say that it was an unbreakable bond.  Rumors and over heard snippets of conversation suggested that Cheeky had been warned by the venerable sage of a raid on a Peanut laundering scheme, moments before the Feds closed in and rounded up most of the co-conspirators.  C” remains free to this day under the advice and council of his age less friend E”.

After Shave

the Face of Everyman had been developing a line of After Shave for the Father’s Day gift giver.  He asked Cheeky to give him an honest opinion.  One side was Foggy Bottoms Signature while the opposite was Forage.  C preferred the latter.  Powdered nuts, mostly sugared pecans and hazelnuts, in a light peanut oil base.  Signature had an overpowering Bayberry/Musk scent reminiscent of the dim smoky candles used at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa monthly Coven and Hoedown.
