Let’s take a load off until a taxi comes by…
Ooookay, guys, I’ll admit it was a dumb idea to just drop by the ambassador’s residence here in Paris without calling first, but who knew he’d be out on a weeknight?
I even got him a bottle of duty-free Sambuca at the airport, too. Let’s give him five more minutes – I bet he just went up to the corner for some gum.
These concrete steps are really uncomfortable. Herb, go jiggle that doorknob and see if he left it unlocked. Maybe we can find some leftovers in the kitchen.
I’ll tell you one thing, this is the LAST time I go overseas without planning some stuff in advance!
You guys wanna go see some more damned paintings? Yeah, me neither…
