The white porcelain cup and saucer sat all alone on the park bench. Such carelessness! A small spoon lay on the saucer.

He looked around and determined no one in the park was paying him any mind. He cradled cup and saucer in his hands gleefully and went off.

An elderly woman stopped pretending to sleep, watched him go and cackled.
