beige-ness tended to blend easily with certain easy chair cushions.  This voodoo lily, originally grown in a voodoo lounge, went by the name of Langtry and was much to refined a blossom to be trapped down where the pocket change, dropped olives, and farts accumulated.   Now, liberated at last, Langtry was eager to...
