$ Excuse me, are you selling that ticket?

+ I am.

$ Where is it?

+ Family Circle box. The sound's great. Couldn't be better, in fact.

$ Oh, it's partial view!

$ Yeh, but it's partial view. I want full. How much?

+ Face value. No more, no less.

* Sir, over here- I'll give you forty. Forget that cheapskate!

+ Sold, to the little lady, but for twenty-nine fifty!

$ Wait, I'll give you thirty five!

+ Nope. Face Value.

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
