Another Lying Jade

Another Lying Jade

Rumour is a lying jade, but the fickle lady hath it that there was once a geology demonstrator, known to all as a confirmed misogynist, who once took some of his class (mostly feminine) into the gardens "after dusk" to reveal to them the mysteries of water divining. Standing on a little bridge, the divine one proved to the satisfaction of everyone that the stream below was real water, and although the moon was big and full that night, and the audience full of adoration for their hero, they think he liked the glow worms best.
