I reopened the office the following week.
Helen Wheels was back from vacation and already full of local goose-soup when she ankled in around ten o’clock.
“Boss”, she said, “a sad thing has happened.
Wotsit Mean, the warehouseman at Sider’s went to see our neighbour across the hall, Bindar Dundat, the Regression Therapist, because he wanted to know about his past wives and got regressed all the way back to a tree.
He started referring to himself as Walt Nutt.
Even Dr. Stigma Fraud could do nothing.
Wotsit would just stand still in his office and root.
The doctor had to call Sleepy Risk to pick him up in his somnambulist.
He’s at the Abandon Hope Hospital right now.
His poor wife, Lena the head nurse at the Abandon. comes in every morning to clean the nuts out of his bed.
She tries to talk to him but all he does is rustle and tell her to leaf him alone,”
