That put me on my pluck, and I bust out just like a sky-rocket too. My blazers ! If it didn't make my head spin. When I collected my idees, I thought I'd look and see if I resembled a glow-worm behind, and there, by thunder, was a long stream of light, just like the tail of a comet ! I tell you, I felt happy !
