In the living room of the small house halfway up the next block, Sade tells how she pulled some strings to get Vic a special ride to Chicago. Though the idea may sound adventuresome to Vic in certain circumstances, he doesn’t relish the thought of a 140 mile ride standing up in the cab of a locomotive. It’s a business trip, and Vic would rather be relaxing with the rest of the passengers.
Can his neighbor, Mr Donahue even let him ride in the cab legally? Would this scheme lower Vic to the status of being a hobo? Poor Vic, though Sade tried to save him a few bucks, and enjoy an adventure to boot, he just isn’t happy with the inconveniences. Someone may have to eat crow if Vic backs down from Mr Donahue’s grand offer.
