I remember the day as if it were yesterday... the first time I spotted the willowy figure in black. I was touched, moved, dumb-struck, felt funny all over- you know? In love! Awww... she was everything I had ever dreamed of in a woman. I thought of her- the illusion of mystery, the poise of her stature: I had to find her again; but where would I begin to look? Later as I came out of the Barber shop, I thought I saw her for just a moment, coming out of a shop up town. But when I looked again- she was gone. Oh... the willowy figure in black. My heart pounded, I nearly swooned. The next day when I went to the bank, I nearly ran into her! But I got nervous and dropped my bank book- I bent down to retrieve it and when I looked up.... (sigh)... she was gone. Oh- the willowy figure in black. Would I ever meet her? One evening I was dining alone and could hardly believe my eyes! It was her- just a few tables away. Knowing it was possibly my ownly chance... I asked for my bill and headed toward her table. But- once again the willowy figure in black had illuded me. When? When would I get to meet her? Tell her of the love I felt for her? Find out all there was to know about her? (sigh) Then one day while taking a walk in the park I saw her again- sitting on a park bench. I tried to hurry over to her before she disappeared once more.... But she wasn't sitting on the bench any longer. I wished with all of my might. Please... oh please- let me find the illusive willowy figure in black. (sigh) When I opened my eyes- there she was! Only a few feet away. Without taking any chances- I hurried over to her. "Excuse me," I said, my voice shaking slightly, my palms sweating, "I've been looking for someone like you my whole life!" OH NO! You can't imagine my surprise-- my horror, when the willowy figure in black turned around... and I discovered it was............ Groucho Marx!

(Groucho) This is certainly a strange situation! I'd ask you to join me for a cup of coffee- but I don't think we'd both fit! (honk-honk) I'd shake your hand- but you seem to be doing a fine job of it yourself! (honk-honk)
I fell into a heap on the ground... devastated. But I did learn something very, very important that day... If ever you see a willowy figure in black.... unless you have a thing for one of the Marx Brothers- keep walking! The End.

I hope you got a chuckle from my story-
