The Abbot Circle 1934 Sfzalfered Pride It was a lovely hotel with a carp pond in the garden behind it and a handsome head-waiter. These were the first things I noticed. Later I discovered that the food was delicious and the view from my bedroom window simply "scrumptious" ifI may coin a very descriptive word, but the first two facts took precedence in my mind. Always eager to learn, I at once set out to investigate the fish in their large cement-rimmed pool. Carp are large and gray, with inordinately large mouths and bulging eyes, and their unmitigated ugliness strikes terror into the hearts of visitors who watch them goop Qmy own expressionb at bits of bread, and I was no exception. My next step was tentatively to essay an acquaintanceship with the head-waiter, but apparently this was impossible. Maybe it was because his name was Georges. At any rate, all my rather timorous advances fell on barren ground. Georges's good looks remained unimpaired by any acknowledging smile. The morning that I broke my soft boiled egg into an egg cup which was evidently not meant to contain a liquid and carelessly allowed the gooey substance to flood the plate beneath-that morning, I say, I noticed a smile hovering about the lips of the august maitre d' hotel. But alas, I realized with my usual astuteness that he was laughing at me instead of with me. So it was with rather forlorn hopes that I perceived that Georges himself was to wait on our table that memorable noon. Moreover, the tables were set outdoors on the terrace, as they always were on fine days, and that pleased me immensely, al- though I disliked bees getting into the jam and their buzzing futilely. The meal ended with cooling liquid refreshment, of which I did not partake. So instead I strolled, to be frank, swaggered, around the grounds aware that there were more than one pair of eyes fixed upon me, but especially one. Arriving at the carp pond I suddenly took it into my head to ascend onto the cement rim and walk pensively around the idly floating carp. What a dramatic figure I imagined myself, as I "probed the inky depths!" But, alas, the fascination must have proved too great, for I missed my foot- ing, teetered this way and that, and finally fell noisily into the carp pond. Ah, it is only too true that the fall of the mighty is great, but it is also true that the rise of the fallen is sudden. At least it was in my case. I was only aware of a strong hand ig- nominiously seizing me by an ignominious garment of my apparel, and then I was on my feet, dripping dejectedly, with Georges's arm around me and a sympathetic grin on his face. Indignantly I thrust him away, then ran weeping and disgraced to my mother, for at the age of six one's romantic illusions should be dispatched into the cruel world only if labeled: Fragile-Handle with Care.
