my deer brooch has inexplicably gone missing. i cannot believe that wee Flossy would have sprang from my lapel only to gambol about the cold harsh streets of london when she and i have been such good friends these past few years. i suspect that some covetous creature may have pinched it. i implore all to keep an eyeout for the precious and report back to me should they find it, that one day i may be reunited with my beloved. alternatively you could keep a lookout on ebay and buy me a replacement. . .
