Host: So good of you to come, my dear friend. I have few guests here. One lump or two?
Guest: Two. Thank you. We have many things to discuss, you and I.
Host: Oh, I almost forgot. Your lovely wife sent along a pie. Apparently, it was something special that arrived after you departed. She had a slice first, of course. She is a charming girl, isn’t she? Come, let us have a slice with our tea. I could see it is the freshest one. Why, it almost seemed to bubble as if it were still in the oven.
