A funny thing happened on the way to the forum...
As an associate and I were strolling down the Via Sacra, we happened to most literally bump into one of the Marines that was seen escorting my Victoria on the night of her disappearance. Imagine our surprise, as this gentleman had been nearly impossible to locate - almost as if he was the one to go missing.
Things only became more funny from there - despite the fact that many have said I have no sense of the joke. After a brief, shall we say, conversation, this gentleman was most willing to empty the contents of his pockets, from whence came this curious item:
As you may already have guessed, this coat check ticket, when presented at the Embassy by my associate, yielded the coat worn on the night in question by la mia stella. I couldn't help myself. As soon as I had it in my hands, I sunk my face into its folds and inhaled deeply. My love, she smells like butterflies.
And then I went through the pockets. Strange, the only thing Victoria had in her coat pocket was a tiny slip of paper from a fortune cookie: "You will soon win some high prize or award." Perhaps this is argomento di riflessione.
