Welcome to the latest Tale of the Imp where we discover more about his personal hygiene. As always this was first published in the Indie Book Bargains newsletter (http://www.indie-book-bargains.co.uk/):
Tales of the Imp - Silky Beard
I'm proud of my beard. I've had it for many years and it does a wonderful job of covering my face. So much so, that children no longer scream in horror when they see me.
It's also a fun thing to stroke. It gives me a philosophical look, like I'm pondering the mysteries of the universe.
Anyway, I realised that my beard has become softer recently.
I asked the Imp if he had anything to do with it. He replied that he did. So I asked him what he did to it. He answered that I didn't want to know.
