WILL WONDERS NEVER CEASE? WILL WONDERS NEVER CEASE? Oh, where was I? I AM SO SORRY ABOUT LAST NIGHT. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE IN EVERY WAY
BUT TOGETHER YOU AND I WILL LAUGH AT LAST NIGHT SOME DAY… I SAT THERE WAITING IN THAT CAFÉ

HAS TURNED INTO A MAN I LIKE! IT’S ALMOST LIKE A DREAM
AND STRANGE AS IT MAY SEEM, HE CAME TO OFFER ME VANILLA
ICE CREAM!
