Wooden leg kills dream

Of diplomat? Become spy.

Fight the Gestapo.

It’s a valid solution to most of life’s problems. Her wooden leg had its own codename – Cuthbert – and when she complained to her superiors about Cuthbert giving her trouble, she received a message back suggesting that she eliminate him. Still didn’t stop her from aiding the French Resistance and being a Nazi botherer.

Man, World War II was the best war for spy shenanigans.
