Supressing all signs of astonishment, I raised my hat in soul-benumbed salute and refrained, in an excess of difficulty, from casting myself down upon my knees in homage to Aphrodite, Astarte, Athena, Isis, Hecuba, Demeter, Eriu, Persephone, and said, “My word, seems like a lovely day.” “Yes,” they replied, “the rain is holding off.” I staggered away, transfixed, dumbfounded, My heart all tangled in turbid turmoil, marking in a moment a clear and solemn resolve that I would shortly, indubitably, involve my future and fortune … with the Vision of Venus on the left. Version 2: I was walking down the street when I met two birds and politely said Hello; I later married the one with the big ... well, turns out they were fake, but she's a jolly young thing and we knock along.
