Scene: The gloomy, rainy sidewalk in my neighborhood, this morning around 10:30.
Ethel Louise, carrying a grocery sack over her shoulder, crosses paths with The Absolute Professor.
TAP: “Fancy meeting you here!”
EL: “I know! I should be studying! But I’m having one of those mornings where you pour your milk into your coffee only to discover that it’s gone bad! The kind of morning that will make getting back to the Weimar Republic seem uplifting!”
TAP: “That’s really depressing.”
EL: “I know.”
