Esquire Brier found the scintillating Ms Muddy Mossy Messy Macie warming up in the Side Yard for the next day's Dance competition.
"Hey, Ms Macie! Need a partner?"
"Can you dance?"
"We are--each of us--dying; it's how we live in the meantime that makes the difference."
"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"
"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
