Mr. Bunion: Some people do not have to hustle but I'm not some-
/
Mr. Bunion: Of the some! What came of my valise?
/
Mr. Bunion: Where did it go? It was here a minute ago! I had it with me!
/
Mr. Bunion: Where do you suppose it went! That's strange! Huh!
/
Mr. Bunion: I know it isn't lost. I can't lose it! But where is--
/
Mr. Bunion: it now? I had it a minute ago. yes, I've had it hours, days, weeks, months and years ago!
/
Mr. Bunion: Where is the old thing? Oh! Eh! Here it is! If it had been a snake it would have bit me.
