" I shall lose my job," he thought, "but I'm not sure that it wouldn't be worth it."
Next day they were already sitting at table when she came in to dinner.
" Sylvester Abend tomorrow," she said, brightly. That was the sort of thing she would say. She went on: "Well, what have you all been up to this morning?"
