The Abbot put down the empty mug and addressed the computer:

My Good Sir,

As you requested, I did not go to Western Union today.

It is unclear to me what has changed in your strategy regarding this matter but I am confident that you will keep me well informed.

For what it is worth, we have received a postcard from Tuck. It was from Mt Disappointment, a picturesque spot the other side of Geelong, and was silent as to whether the location reflected any irony on the wayward couple's fornicatory exploits.

Nor was there any mention of the goat.

Or, for that matter, my car.

Yours sincerely,

Abbot Costello.

He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprises.

- Job 5:12

He then turned the computer off, took his secateurs and went outside to prune the roses.
