Re: RARA-AVIS: Practical tips from hardboiled dicks

What about this one, from Farewell, My Lovely, after a particularly bad night - and some advice for dealing with unwanted visitors:

My left foot felt fine. It didn't have an ache in it. So I had to kick the corner of the bed with it.

Cheers Chris
