Incendio and Alec woke to find all their money had been stolen during the night.
They had planned to invest their savings in a highly profitable candle making business, thus becoming rich beyond their wildest dreams, but those plans were dashed on the rocks like so many eggs thrown down from someplace high onto those very same rocks I just mentioned. Incendio and Alec would have to change their plans.
“Well, there’s more than one way to skin a cat,” Alec said.
Incendio grimaced and spat, “I absolutely hate that phrase!”
“Oh, I didn’t mean to offend,” Alec stammered.
“It’s not that. It’s just that the world of Academia has proven beyond any doubt that there is exactly one precise way to skin a cat. Any other ways are barbaric and butcherous, and I just won’t stand for it.”
“But that one particular way is okay?”
“Yeah, that one way is fine.”
