Plot bullets


  • Mr. Flutter is bashful, I mean, really bashful.

  • If there is an accident,mishap or chance for embarrassment, that chance is waiting for him and the accident or mishap has his name on it.

  • Things never get better, just worse, and worse in a very humorous way.

  • We can follow this unfortunate life, as he reveals it. And that life is surely best captioned as:: The Blunders of a Bashful Man.
