Rocky had been up all night prepping for his appearance on Jeopardy, the long running TV game show. He was almost too tired to sleep. Names, dates and formulas filled his head. the Face of Everyman had agreed to tutor this brilliant scallywag on his promise to never again spin the venerable sage like a child’s top. Rocky’s episode will be recorded on this very spot in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and released soon as a Summer Series on a yet unnamed streaming channel. Subtitles in Esperanto will be offered.
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.
Seen above in an archived image are the founding fathers of the Foggy Bottom Resort and Spa Toastmasters Club. Organizational suggestions offered by the Face of Everyman went unheeded. In the end the noontime Club disbanded and returned their charter. The two main reasons given: the catered road kill servings were small and the speeches were to be given in Esperanto.
Once again a Super Being had slipped thru the barrier that separates reality from that magical land known as the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Such error in judgement comes with dire consequences. Seen above in security file footage are Fenimore and Leander. Neither is sure that the hand is not some aberration. The cries for help were in some obscure dialect of Esperanto. The mind of the Face of Everyman became totally involved in thought as he went thru the rigorous ordeal of conjugating verbs in this new language. A brief public inquest may be held next week. Or not.
