Tell that to any girl who hasn't bothered to put on a presentable shirt or fix her hair because she's only running into the grocery store to get a quart of milk for her grandmother, and who does she see tending the 7-ITEMS-OR-LESS cash register but the guy of her dreams, except she can't even say hi-much less try to develop a meaningful relationship-since she looks like the poster child for the terminally geeky." - Vivian Vande Velde

Other men swallowed water, here a mouthful, there a pint, anon, maybe, a quart or so, and returned to the shore like foundering derelicts.

When he swam on his back, you felt that that was the only possible method of progression." - P G Wodehouse
