Deirdre's draggy cousin Teddy Villemure insisted on tagging along with us on these picnics. Worse yet, Teddy had somehow developed the idea that show girls made wildly amusing company, and so he kept inviting dancers from the Sand Follies Revue to join use as well. They were vacant-minded little hoydens, forever whining about the heat, and like all show girls, pathological kleptomaniacs. One of them stole Viola's silver cigarette case. That was the last straw for Bucky, who hated pettiness perhaps more than he hated anything on this earth. Bucky took that girl by the scruff of the neck and marched her over to the Esplanade of the Africas and promptly sold her to the first Arab he found. One can still see him coming back to the picnic afterward, making that washing-of-the-hands motion say more than a million words. This all sent Teddy Villemure a bit bonkers, but it also sent him away, thank heavens.
