Face Value

$ 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!

+ S'ok. Opera's not the movies. It's about what you hear, not
what you see.

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

+ Face value. No more, no less.

$ Scalper!

+ I said face value. If you're looking for a scalper, there's
one over on Columbus.

$ You'll never sell it. Can't you do twenty? I'm on a fixed

+ Sorry, it's Tenebbko singing. I could get a hundred.

$ Twenty-five, then. It's better than nothing.

* 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.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
