I decided to marry her. Courtship would be a mere formality. But what to say to begin the courtship? "Would you like some of my chewing gum?" seemed too low-class. "Hello," was too trite a greeting for my future bride. "I love you! I am hot with passion!" was too forward. "I want to make you the mother of my children," seemed a bit premature. So I said nothing. After a while, the bus reached her stop, she got off, and I never saw her again.
