George Johnson, a hard-bitten man of early middle age,
had evaded many a marital trap, but was now hopelessly
in love with pretty young Nancy.
Finally he said, "Will you marry me, Nancy?"
She smiled and said, "Oh yes, George."
There followed a long silence, till Nancy said, "Well,
say something more, George."
And Johnson said hollowly, "I think I've said too much as it is."
