Many of you have heard the story of how Bingo Little, exiled to the Senior Liberal Club during the Drones Club spring cleaning, met Rosie M. Banks, who was waiting tables there in order to gather atmosphere for her novel Mervyn Keene, Clubman. That the immediate effect on Bingo was world-shaking, we know; but the stunning impact of Cupid's dart on Rosie has not yet been related. In fact, that afternoon, Miss Banks was entirely distracted. After Bingo and Bertie left, she continued her waitress duties lost in some divine romantic fog. The four tables she was assigned to all ordered different entrees, and to each she delivered the entirely wrong dish!
Her customers, each dining alone, were as follows: Sir Roderick Glossop, Major Brabazon-Plank, Sir Jasper ffinch-ffarrowmere, and Catsmeat Potter-Pirbright (as Drones refugee). Each gentleman ordered and received one of the following dishes: the Quail stuffed with Wild Rice, the Roast Beef, the Filet of Sole, and the Turkey Tetrazzini. The tables (reading from North to South) were designated A, B, C & D.
