From Ch 5: In Which the Adventurers Become Lost


"Have you any idea how long this journey is going to take?" asked Edward.
Avon stopped suddenly. "Me?" he asked. "I thought you were leading the way."

Edward was upset. "Great," he answered. "We're lost."
Avon felt like crying. "I'm sorry Edward. My mind is on any adventures that might come along. I wasn't paying particular attention to where we were going."

"There, there." said Edward, realizing he had hurt Avon's feelings. "Getting yourself lost is easy. Happens all the time. It's finding yourself that's hard. So I suggest we stop at the first door we come to and ask for suggestions."

"You mean directions, don't you?"

"It's hard enough being lost," explained Edward, "but worse still if you don't know what you are lost from. So, suggestions first, directions second."
