I'm five foot three - you call THAT tall?

Maybe Sir Cubinoid could use these rocket boots I have found in the chamber below... they look hardly used and almost reliable!

Cubinoid flies through the hatch, rocket boots attached to his feet -

"AIEEEEE!!!!!!"

The disappearing form of Cubinoid sailing upwards into the distance is accompanied by the sound of a failing, sputtering engine.
His hat falls off, gently tumbling through the smoke trail.

A distant apology is heard:

"I'm terribly sorry!"

And quite the spectacular posture! I didn't know it was possible to do a triple somersault without losing one's goggles!

I feel he could have warned that flock of birds, though.  Manners these days!



Maybe we should change our name to the "Not so secret flying circus and acrobat troupe"?

Far off in the distance and beautifully backlit by the warm glow of the setting sun, a rising puff of smoke is accompanied by a dull thud.

Welcome back. Shall I put the kettle back on?

Hmm, do you think he'll be alright? I suppose we should go and find him first...

I have the feeling we should reunite Sir Cubinoid with his top hat. Oh and see if he's alright.

No, but that's a troll house you're in, you know - it would be best to beat a hasty but dignified retreat - or, if you prefer, a strategic withdrawal!

(It is of course well known that Cubinoid has excellent hearing.
A distant voice shouts and echoes through the haze of the evening sun)

He seems to have survived with most of his senses intact. Perhaps we should re-unite him with that hat.
It isn't quite as warm and red as the boots, but it does seem to be wet.

Sorry about that, [sniff, sniff] I think it was the tea-leaves.

Although they are useful at getting stains out if you had any.

On the hat, I mean, it'll take a lot of second-hand Darjeeling to get those boots clean.

You'd better hurry with the hat reunion.

*Hesitates, wondering whether to doff a hat at an unconscious lady, before realizing that he is hatless.
