“Esther, I’m afraid I’m bringing you bad news. It’s awful… I can’t take you to the dance tonight. My tuxedo… it’s at the tailor’s. It’s locked up. Basketball practice ran late. And when I got to the store, there was a sign in the window: CLOSED. I can’t find the tailor to make him open up shop; all I know is his name is Jones and he lives somewhere in St. Louis. And I can’t borrow someone else’s, because everyone who owns a tuxedo is going to the ball. I’m sorry. This is a fine going-away present I’m giving you. I bet you must really hate me. Would you like to go somewhere else tonight?”
“Esther, don’t cry! I never would have asked you if I’d thought it would make you unhappy. At least you didn’t laugh. I’ve never asked a girl to marry me before. I probably didn’t say it right. But will you, Esther? Will you marry me? Do you realize I might have lost you? Two more days and you would’ve been gone. We might never have seen each other again. Now when you go to New York, it will be with your husband, and your folks can show us the town! Let’s go in and tell them!”
