Felix paused in enjoying a picture of a dandelion, his enjoyment was ruffled because there was a real dandelion on the rug. Mark Twain nodded in sympathy. “I’m not as compulsively neat as you are, Felix, but I have other personal quirks that provide for humorous situations when combined with, or set against, the quirks of any of my various co-habitues,” he opined.
