The secret to magic is misdirection: see what's in my hand, now look away, and when your eyes return: rabbits.
Adam unveiled a clothes-line of socks in volley two, and then our attention was directed elsewhere as talk of the weather reigned (so to speak). When we look again, it's a string of peppers, perfect for those Cape Town summer BBQs Adam claims to love.
This is Layer Se7en, as Oleg notes, and the niceties may fall by the wayside as our combatants seek advantage, looking for a finishing stroke. But before the final fracas, Oleg extends this olive branch, a video of a Russian singer singing the praises of Cape Town, ZA:
It will be interesting to see what Adam makes with these delightful ingredients. A dish to be shared between the two of them? Or pepper stray, in preparation for the kill?

Our friends and longtime sponsors at Adobe have a quick survey for Layer Tennis fans. It would mean a lot to us if you could take a couple minutes between layers to answer some simple questions. Thanks a million.
