ALIX of BOHEMIA

THE GYPSY TAILOR

NO REST FOR THE WICKED

AND BEFORE WE KNEW IT, IT WAS THAT TIME AGAIN:

SHOWTIME, BABY.

SHOWTIME, BABY.

AND EVEN THOUGH WE WERE VERY TIRED INDEED FROM ALL OF THAT SEWING, WE STRETCHED OUR LIMBS AND HOPPED IN THE WAGON, BOUND FOR OUR SECOND HOME IN THE CITY.

WE MAY HAVE HAD TO WRANGLE THE MERCHANDISE AWAY FROM JASPER, WHO HAD GROWN SOMEWHAT ATTACHED TO THE WARES:

WE CLICKED OUR HEELS TOGETHER AND ARRIVED:

WE DECIDED TO PLAY WITH SOME CHALK AND MAKE A SIGN.

(WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE SIGNS. GOOD SIGNS, LIFE SIGNS, PEACE SIGNS)

FELT A LITTLE FUZZY.

SAME OLD, SAME OLD.

MOTHER BOHEMIA ARRIVED, LOOKING SMASHING IN LEATHER AND OUR LEOPARD WAISTCOAT.

SHE BROUGHT A TABLECLOTH AND TULIPS,

"IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DO SOMETHING RIGHT, DON'T DO IT AT ALL"

SAYS MOTHER.

THERE WAS WINE, OF COURSE. WHICH HAD TO BE DRUNK TO SEAL THE DEAL.

THE MIA COAT. NAMED FOR OUR GREAT AUNT ABBEY, WHO'S OLDER THAN DIRT AND MORE GLAMOUROUS THAN GOLD. SHE'S ALSO KNOWN AS GLAMOURINA:

EVERY PIECE OF BOHEMIA FOUND A RIGHTEOUS HOME. WHICH IS THE WAY IT WORKS. THE PIECES CHOOSE YOU, AND YOU HAVE TO SUBMIT TO THEIR CHARMS.
