Beautiful anecdote.

Great great story; imagine the charge in the room afterward;
K. had not only spared the one kid, but the others from their
ugly laugh, their turn as executioners.

Ja, dass ist richtig. Along similar lines, a guest in Cole Porter's home once dropped and broke a valuable piece of glassware. Seeing the look of horror on his guest's face, Porter picked up an equally valuable piece, admired it for a moment, and then "accidently" dropped it. "See, it can happen to anyone," he laughed.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
