Lost Positives: How I met my wife by Jack WinterPublished 25 July 1994 - The New Yorker

from Journey to the East: Lost Positives

How I met my wife by Jack WinterPublished 25 July 1994 - The New Yorker

It had been a rough day, so when I walked into the party I was very chalant, despite my efforts to appear gruntled and consolate.
I was furling my wieldy umbrella for the coat check when I saw her standing alone in a corner. She was a descript person, a woman in a state of total array. Her hair was kempt, her clothing shevelled, and she moved in a gainly way.
I wanted desperately to meet her, but I knew I'd have to make bones about it since I was travelling cognito. Beknownst to me, the hostess, whom I could see both hide and hair of, was very proper, so it would be skin off my nose if anything bad happened. And even though I had only swerving loyalty to her, my manners couldn't be peccable. Only toward and heard-of behavior would do.
Fortunately, the embarrassment that my maculate appearance might cause was evitable. There were two ways about it, but the chances that someone as flappable as I would be ept enough to become persona grata or a sung hero were slim. I was, after all, something to sneeze at, someone you could easily hold a candle to, someone who usually aroused bridled passion.
So I decided not to risk it. But then, all at once, for some apparent reason, she looked in my direction and smiled in a way that I could make heads and tails of.
I was plussed. It was concerting to see that she was communicado, and it nerved me that she was interested in a pareil like me, sight seen. Normally, I had a domitable spirit, but, being corrigible, I felt capacitated -- as if this were something I was great shakes at -- and forgot that I had succeeded in situations like this only a told number of times. So, after a terminable delay, I acted with mitigated gall and made my way through the ruly crowd with strong givings.
Nevertheless, since this was all new hat to me and I had no time to prepare a promptu speech, I was petuous. Wanting to make only called-for remarks, I started talking about the hors d'oeuvres, trying to abuse her of the notion that I was sipid, and perhaps even bunk a few myths about myself.
She responded well, and I was mayed that she considered me a savory character who was up to some good. She told me who she was. "What a perfect nomer," I said, advertently. The conversation become more and more choate, and we spoke at length to much avail. But I was defatigable, so I had to leave at a godly hour. I asked if she wanted to come with me. To my delight, she was committal. We left the party together and have been together ever since. I have given her my love, and she has requited it.

 Description of Cottage Vacation Rental:

 "The cottage sleeps six (6) comfortably.  It is two levels.  The ground floor consists of a kitchen, bathroom, and combination living/dining room.  The stove and oven are electric.  There is an automatic coffee maker and a microwave.  There is no automatic dishwasher.  The bathroom has a stall shower but no tub.  There is also an outdoor shower.  On the second level are three bedrooms.  There is a double bed in the master bedroom and twin beds in the two other bedrooms.  Guests are responsible for bringing bed linens and towels. 

"There is both a charcoal grill and an electric grill for guests' use. Also, the yard is quite spacious and has a hammock, a picnic table and a wooden swing.  And there are plenty of beach chairs.

"The cottage is not air-conditioned.  However, since it is built of concrete blocks, it is very comfortable on all but the two or three high heat/high humidity days that we experience on the Cape during the summer.  Also there are fans in all the rooms.  There is a gas-burning heating stove in the living/dining room for those chilly nights in the early spring and late fall.

"Rental from mid-June through mid-September is by the week, running from Saturday to Saturday.  In the off-season, i.e. the beginning of May to mid-June, and post Labor Day to the end of October, both mid-week and weekend rentals may be available."

It's Tynwald Day on the Isle of Man

I love their Motto: Quocunque Jeceris Stabit (Latin)
" Whithersoever you throw it, it will stand." from Wikipedia: Isle of Man

The Tynwald is their legislature, which they celebrate today.

Another thing I did not know: Japan does not use street names
