His model started to disrobe, but the artist stopped her.
'Keep your clothes on, for a while,' he said, 'I'm not ready to start working yet; I must have some coffee and aspirins.' The sympathetic model taking in at a glance his unhappy state, generously offered to make the coffee for him, which offer the artist accepted with relief. The coffee having been made, the two were just sitting down to drink it, when familiar footsteps were heard ascending the staircase. The artist leaped to his feet.
