  • There actually are such things?

    *brows rising*

    January 1, 2010

  • "'That's what Monsieur Parnelle said.'

    'And who's he, when he's at home?' I asked flippantly.

    The plump nun frowned in bewilderment. 'Well, at his own establishment, I believe he is a maker of trusses, and a jeweler. When he comes here, though, he acts usually as a urinoscopist.'

    I felt my own brows rising. 'A urinoscopist?' I said unbelievingly. 'There actually are such things?'"
