It: Good afternoon, Sir. Are you ready to order?
He: Yes. For starters, could you get us some naturally curly fries and grad student barbecue sauce?
It: And the main course?
He: Sense of proportion for me, and gumption for the lady.
It: We have a house special today, Miss. You get free advice with gumption.
She: No, thanks.
He: I'll take the advice. I love advice.
It: I am sorry, Sir, but free advice and a sense of proportion don't go together very well.
He: Why is that?
It: I don't know, Sir, just something my mother heard from her mother.
He: Funny. Sounds like the sort of thing this lady here used to write on her life page.
It: You have a life page, Miss?
He: Not anymore. Two links under and resting in pieces.
It: Sorry to learn about the death, Sir.
He: Oh no, not dead! Just stunned.
