"Yeah. And?"

"Pepper. Salt. Ducks. Ivory, but don't tell anybody."

"Seriously? Knives?"

He handed me the duffle bag. "Knives. And everything you need to know is in there, too."


"Everything. The molecular structure of Ferrous Oxide. The length of a stick. The speed of light under water."

"What about the temperature of Jupiters core? The average age of a bitch collie in its first heat? Foreign exchange rates for all currencies against Bhutan?"

"All of that. Plus the phone numbers of every Mossad agent, and their email address and blog addresses. Oh, and the starting lineup of the 1947 New York Yankees."

I hoisted the duffle bag, surprisingly light, over my shoulder and smiled at him. "I couldn't ask for more. I'll be back tomorrow. You want extra cheese?"

Hah. "I could just fancy some cheese, Gromit. What do you say? Cheddar?"
