A Flash in the Pan?

E rnest by name and earnest by
N ature, he’s spent a small fortune seeking the answers to What? and Why?
L aughter is another country and the gloom deepens when a four-figure
I nvoice from his latest Spiritual
G uru falls through the letterbox one morning. Money for old rope,
H e mutters, recalling how that rogue climbed the cord to the very
T op and vanished into thin air just like the Cheshire Cat. Old rope …
E rnest frowns at the frayed coil on the carpet. A broad smile appears from
N owhere. Before it can fade, he seeks within for his second-ever joke.
