THE PITCHER OF DORIAN GRAY

(With apologies to author Cornell Wilde.)
Realizing that one day his beauty will fade, Dorian (whimsically) expresses a desire to sell his soul to ensure his pitcher would age rather than he. Dorian's wish is fulfilled, and when he subsequently pursues a life of debauchery, the face on the pitcher serves as a reminder of the effect each act has upon his soul, with each sin displayed as a disfigurement of his form, or through a sign of aging . Well, the pitcher gets pretty danged ugly and continues to deteriorate as Dorian lives it up............What did you say?.............Oh no!...........It's “The PICTURE of Dorian Gray?”............ Well, this is embarrassing. …...............Never Mind.
