"The Unrest-Cure" and "The Easter Egg"

"The Unrest-Cure"
"The Easter Egg"
by Saki

(These were chosen at almost-random from a collection of Saki's short stories, for "stop-gap" reading.)

"The Unrest-Cure" was by far the more amusing (and bizarre) of the two, though the last couple of lines of "The Easter Egg" were also good.

...I don't think I can write much about either without spoiling them (and I'm just not in the mood, either).  Both are quite short-- ideal for a quick read between books.  I must remember to read more Saki again soon.  He's one of those short story authors with a very familiar name and reputation, yet when I come right down to it, I don't think I've read more than two or three of his stories.
