To me, the inside pocket was one of the most clever inventions. I used it to hide gum and lint covered gum. But I am sure that it had darker beginnings.
Guy with weapons in his inside pocket: Go ahead. Search me. I am innocent I tell you. (A wry smile fills his face)
Guy looking for weapons: I don’t understand…(patting down). I know I saw you with at least 3 swords not two shakes ago.
Guy with weapons: I think you have the wrong guy. (Another wry smile fills his face)
Guy looking for weapons: No! The guy I saw distinctly had a large mole hanging on his left eyelid, preventing him from blinking properly.
Guy with weapons: Well, it is obviously not me. You may have noticed that I have this patch over my left eye (points to eye). I wear it because I am blind in that eye. (Wry smile developing)
Guy looking for weapons: Hmmm. I guess you are right. I apologize for disrupting your visit to the castle good sir. I hope you are fortunate enough to see the king today. He is due to visit this very court any minute now.
Guy with weapons: Thanks for the tip. (Yet another wry smile fills his face)
