Once upon a time there was a young man called Edward who lived by himself with a great amount of dignity. He had so much dignity that when he made his solitary evening meal he garnished it with a jaunty sprig of parsley. That's how he thought the parsley looked: jaunty. Jaunty and dignified. He also made sure he promptly washed and dried his dishes after completing his solitary evening meal. Only lonely people didn't take pride in their dinners and in their washing up, and Edward held it as a point of honour that while he had no need for people in his life, he was not going to be lonely. Life might not be much fun, mind you, but it seemed to have fewer people in to irritate him.
