40.2

Cock and Bull...

That's a phrase I hadn't heard in a while, and it takes me back. To about 1952, and a day that pretty permanently changed my life.

Why?

I think that's the second thing I ever heard Wintergreen say. "Pardon me for joining in, Yanks..." over the sound of a damn good punch into Fenster's jaw was the first, then "but I haven't had a good scuffle since the last Boxing Day rout at the Cock 'n' Bull."

He has to be the only man that would apologize even as he's kicking someone in the face... but then, probably only that he was cross-service saved him from some serious trouble over pulling me out of that beating. I spent a good eight months in his debt, before I got to return the favor.

God only knows if he was joking about that fight more than the obvious, but either way, it was a damn lucky thing for me. Of course, he spins pretty good cock and bull tales, too...
