The auction was in full swing. Philip sat discretely at the back of the hall.

–  A damaged Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

–  Two boxes of formatted 5 1/4” floppy disks.

Then, “What am I bid for this very attractive, cordless, portable mouse, in a modern blue design!”

The audience laughed.

The bidding petered out.

Going , going, gone at £25.

Philip was the highest bidder.

When the auction was over he collected what he knew to be a Logitech mouse.

Only he had recognized the signature of Daniel Borel, Logitech’s founder, under the mouse beside the trackball.

The mouse was worth thousands.  (100 words)
