Hello, said the voice on the telephone. This is Werther

I always wear a sweat shirt.
Im afraid I dont remember you, said Anna Livia Plura Plurabelle.
belle. Plurabelle.
Im the one whose lecture notes youve been borrowing for
two years, said Werther.
Oh, yes! said Anna Livia. What do you wish, Walter??
Werther, said Werther. What I wish is to take you to the
Junior Prom next April.
But this is November 27, Westnor, said Anna Livia.
Werther, said Werther. Yes, I know, but you are so round
and beautiful that I was afraid you might have a date already.?
As a matter of fact I do, Wingate, said Anna Livia.
Werther, said Werther. Oh, dratP
Anna Livia did not really have a date, but she was expecting
to be asked by Stewart Stalwart, athletic and BMOC, handsome
as Apollo, smooth as ivory, wearer of faultless tweeds, smoker
of Marlboro cigarettes which even without his other achieve achievements
ments achievements would stamp him as a man with know-how, with a
pleasure-oriented palate. If you think flavor went out whe
filters came in, try a Marlboro. This one brims with zest and
zip and the good, mild taste so dear to those who smoke for the
pure joy of it. Get yourself a pack of Marlboros and listen to
your friends say, There, by Gedfge, goes a smoker who know*
a hawk from a handsaw.
But I digress. Anna Livia waited and waited for Stewart
Stalwart to ask her, but two days before the Prom, to every everybodys
bodys everybodys amazement, he asked Rose-of-Sharon Kinsolving, a non nondescript
descript nondescript girl with pavement-colored hair and a briefcase.
Anna Livia immediately phoned Werther Bigafooe. My
Prom date baa come down with a dread virus, she said, and
I have decided to accept your invitation, Waldrop.
Werther, aaid Werther. Oh, goody ganders!
The next day Anna Livia received a phone call from Stewart
Stalwart. My Prom date has come down with a dread virus,
he said. Will you go with me?
Certainly, she said and promptly phoned Werther and said,
I have come down with a dread virus and cannot go to the
Prom with you, Whipstitch. |
Werther, said Werther. Oh, mice and rats!
So Anna Livia went to the Prom with Stewart and who do yon
think they ran into? Roee-of-Sharon with Werther, that* who!
Stewart had felt obliged to ask Roee-of-Sharon because she
always did his homework, but she had weaseled out because she
really wanted to go with Werther with whom she felt a great
oneness because they were both so dumpy. He fell wildly in
love with her at the Prom and today they are married and run
a very successful five-minute auto wash in New Bern, N. C.
Anna Livia and Stewart are happy, too. They are still juniors
