Jacques seemed pretty pleased to hear the news. He seemed even more pleased when he was spotted later that night in the Marquis De Sade. Those who know him will recall that he seldom drinks to excess. Now we know why.

Thirty people looked on aghast, though only three of them share the burden of living with the man. I, for my part, managed to miss this entire scene, hearing about it secondhand from Amanda.
On balance, I’m glad I missed it all.
