“We called them theochemists,” Marie said. They stuck out in more ways than one. “They were really straitlaced, they didn’t drink—you’d give them a drink and they’d throw it in a potted plant.” In contrast, other Lamonters, by the close of the rowdy Friday afternoon parties, were much more likely to be found facedown in the potted plants.
