1. That Sickening Feeling

It was with a moody, morose, hangdog expression that I picked at the morning repast, I don't mind admitting. One sometimes reads the phrase, "Sick to the pit of his stomach", in murder mysteries and horror yarns and the like, and I never quite knew what the chap was getting at, although it sounded something one definitely wanted to swerve.

The quickest route from A to B, so the boffins used to instruct me, is in a straight line, which seems a reasonable enough way of approaching that particular conundrum; but if you are a member of the good ship Hotspur it pretty much is a condition of employment these days that anything resembling a straight line gets tossed out of the window, and the most convoluted and complicated way of doing things is instead selected.
