A young man was standing in the stoop, and said, "Hi, I'm Eddie, I'm here to pick up Betty, we're going to go and eat some spaghetti, is she ready?" The farmer scratched his chin, but turned around and called for Betty, who zipped down the stairs, kissed her father on the cheek and was gone.
The farmer continued to clean his shotgun until 6PM when there was another knock on the door.
The farmer answered the door with shotgun in tow. There was, again, a young gentleman on the stoop. He said to the farmer, "Hey! My name is Joe, I'm here to pick up Flo. We're going to see a show, is she ready to go?" The farmer again scratched his chin, but turned and called for Flo, who hurried down the stairs, kissed her father's cheek and left with Joe. The farmer returned back to his chair cleaning his shotgun.
