Too Blue

        The entrance was in an L, up marble steps, through a Moorish archway and over a lobby that was too big and a carpet that was too blue. Blue Ali Baba oil jars were dotted around, big enough to keep tigers in. There was a desk and a night clerk with one of those moustaches that gets stuck under your fingernail.
