Two of my students sniggered. I ushered the Great Dane into the hall.

Nevertheless, it permitted me to release it onto the north campus. Sinews, flanks, head. What a magnificent animal. It loped up the winter hillock outside Park Hall without looking back. Thinking on its beauty and self-possession, I returned to my classroom. And closed the door. TWENTY-SEVEN, AND HOLDING: AU of this is true.
