"Odor in the court!" "That's 'order,' not 'odor.'" Fiona Gabshaw rolled her eyes. She often had to correct such mistakes, ever since she set up the first All Kids' Court of Hickory Hill Lane. Fiona had dreams of becoming a very important defense lawyer. Today's judge was Arnold Slammer. He protested, "It could be both. The prosecutor has smelly socks. " Today's trial was especially serious. Of all the crimes – from throwing water balloons to giving atomic wedgies – this was the most grave: taking something that did not belong to you. Wally Weiner was accused of stealing a packet of bubble gum from Randolph Sniffles.

Lo these many years later, Delia Ephron still pines for her first love. It was a black double-breasted tweed coat with a red lining from Saks Fifth Avenue, a ladylike princess coat that set her apart from all those dreary college kids in polo coats. Her older sister, Nora Ephron, who was already living in New York, had helped Delia make the transition from Los Angeles to Connecticut College by taking her shopping for the first tangible evidence that her life had changed — a winter coat.
