Quote of the Day

Over their coffee and rolls next morning the Society for Outwitting Miss Grey Inc. held a meeting. Katherine wanted to know what Inc. meant and Celia said it was a thing societies were but she hadn't an idea of what it meant. "And I don't think it's very important, either," she said.
"It's foiling Miss Grey that's important," said Fiona. "Somehow we must see her without her glasses."
"And see the back of her neck," murmured Katherine.
"But how?" said Fiona, scooping some butter out of a little crock and carefully transferring it to her roll. "I mean, you can't just go up to her and tear the specs off her nose and the bun off her neck. At least I can't. Katherine might."

From THE MOOCHERS ABROAD, Chapter 7, Eclairs.
