It’s that time of year when slugs come out—in copious amounts. Have you ever chanced upon one slug? Two? Three? Well, Scientist maintains that he has been bombarded with slugs. “I just see them everywhere,” he says, “even on my quilt.”
Mr. Magi and Smiles Riot had a meeting this week regarding the Veezler. Apparently, Mr. Riot views the Veezler as his mentor. This, of course, could explain why Smiles Riot’s condition seems to be worsening. What condition, you ask? A condition that the doctors haven’t condition-ified yet.
MR. RATHERQUITE: Where, sir, are you going?
DR. ZAUBERER: Down the hall a bit until I see a prospect.
MR. RATHERQUITE: A prospect, sir?
DR. ZAUBERER [nodding violently]: Oh yes. There’s always many prospects available that, when taken care of carefully, bear fruit and turn into dastardly designs.
MR. RATHERQUITE: Sir, you’re not a gentleman.
DR. ZAUBERER: Quite right. Not a lady either.
MR. RATHERQUITE: Obviously.
Nick forgot, I fear.
