Breakfasts with the Wise Men, Part I

I think I have some extra myrrh stored away.” The three men shuffled their papers and stared at their feet.
“And, Abid,” said Melchior, “I might have some frankincense in my room, but let’s leave that for another giving opportunity. Pack that perfume we picked up at WalziarMart. That will do.”
