What’s Wrong With Tin Futures?
“She was dancing in a show at the Silver Dollar,” Foster was saying. “Under the name of Ethel – didn’t want to use her real name, which was Astrid Jason – but I didn’t know that at the time.”
“Ethel seems like a strange choice for a chorus girl,” Bernie said.
Chorus girls? My ears pricked up. They don’t match, by the way, something I found out not too long ago. Is it a problem? Not for me. But back to chorus girls – were they at all like Autumn and Tulip, those nice young ladies who worked for Livia Moon at her Friendly Coffee And More place in Pottsdale, which is one of the nicest parts of the whole Valley? The And More part was behind a door at the back, and what went on there I’m not too sure about. All I know is that Autumn and Tulip are excellent patters. Is that in To Fetch A Thief or somewhere else?
“Strange how?” said Foster.
“Ethel?” said Bernie. “Kind of old-fashioned. Not sexy.”
“The surname she used was Ready,” Foster said. “Ethel Ready.”
“Oh,” said Bernie.
