            My cousin, Harry, keeps a large curiously
            shaped bottle on p.mp3anent display in
            his study. Despite the fact that the bottle
            is tinted a delicate shade of green, an
            observant visitor would soon notice that
            it is filled with what looks like a thick
            greyish substance. If you were to ask
            Harry what was in the bottle, he would
            tell you that it contained perfumed mud.
            If you expressed doubt or surprise, he
            would immediately invite you to smell it
            and then to rub some into your skin. This
            brief experiment would dispel any further
            doubts you might entertain. The bottle
            really does contain perfumed mud. How
            Harry came into the possession of this
            outlandish stuff makes an interesting story which he is fond of relating. Further-
            more, the acquisition of this bottle cured him of a bad habit he had been
            developing for years.
            Harry used to consider it a great joke to go into expensive cosmetic shops and
            make outrageous requests for goods that do not exist. He would invent fanciful
            names on the spot. On entering a shop, he would ask for a new perfume called
            'Scented Shadow' or for 'insoluble bath cubes'. If a shop girl told him she had
            not heard of it, he would pretend to be considerably put out. He loved to be told
            that one of his imaginary products was temporarily out of stock and he would
            faithfully promise to call again at some future date, but of course he never did.
            How Harry managed to keep a straight face during these perf.mp3ances is quite
            beyond me.
            Harry does not need to be prompted to explain how he bought his precious
            bottle of mud. One day, he went to an exclusive shop in London and asked for
            'Myrolite'. The shop assistant looked puzzled and Harry repeated the word,
            slowly stressing each syllable. When the girl shook her head in bewild.mp3ent,
            Harry went on to explain that 'myrolite' was a hard, amber-like substance
            which could be used to remove freckles. This explanation evidently conveyed
            something to the girl who searched shelf after shelf. She produced all sorts of
            weird concoctions, but none of them met with Harry's requirements. When
            Harry put on his act of being mildly annoyed, the girl promised to order some
            for him. Intoxicated by his success, Harry then asked for perfumed mud. He
            expected the girl to look at him in blank astonishment. However, it was his turn
            to be surprised, for the girl's eyes immediately lit up and she 'fetched several
            botties which she placed on the counter for Harry to inspect. For once, Harry
            had to admit defeat. He picked up what seemed to be the smallest bottle and
            discreetly asked the price. He was glad to get away with a mere five guineas and
            he beat a hasty retreat, clutching the precious bottle under his .mp3. From then
            on, Harry decided that this little game he had invented might prove to be
            expensive. The curious bottle which now adorns the bookcase in his study was
            his first and last purchase of rare cosmetics.
