Poor Bernie.  For some reason Miss Moon really does single him out.  Even Queenie looks a little embarrassed for him- and Mr. Bitters is not remotely impressed.   Now, cut to my cocktail hour discussion with my husband last night.  We were out having a drink at our ‘local’ and got into a pretty serious discussion about Mr. Bitters and what his style of housekeeping would be like.   Mr. Bitters by the way, is the one with the orange bow-tie.  He’s straight-laced and not fussy.  I imagine he clears his throat a lot and straightens his bow-tie more than necessary.  John and I agreed that Mr. Bitters likely keeps his room like an army barracks:  Neat, efficient, and spartan with only a wool blanket,  clock, pencil, paper, lamp and a comb.  I think Miss Moon needs to give him a lesson on cutting loose once in a while.

I don’t know if Miss Moon is entirely correct on this one though.   There is much argument that the creative mind needs a messy place to flourish.  I’m in the middle.  I need relative tidiness but not super tidy as that makes me nervous.
