This is Corky and Sassy's story -
"(Scorpio, 1990) Corky found a cork in the forest, and decided it would make a good backrest. Now he's curious about the bottle that once held his cork. Did a genie live inside ? Despite his wild ideas, he's a real corker. His coin is from France, home to some of the world's best vineyards. Corky's best friend Sassy, a tea totaler, is using a tea bag for her back rest. When Corky asked about the genie, she laughed and said, "I know you're a Woodspirit, but you won't find any 'spirits' in empty bottles." She'll fix Corky a cup of her favorite beverage, sassafras tea. Sassy's coin is Chinese, because she wouldn't leave Corky for all the tea in China."
