“We caught the beginning of something by Debussy.
«You like that kind of music?» she asked.
Some time during the night as we were talking I fell off the couch. I lay on the floor and looked up those beautiful legs. «Baby,» I said, «I'm a genius but nobody knows it but me.»
She looked down at me. «Get up off the floor you damn fool and get me a drink.»
I brought her drink and curled up next to her. I did feel foolish. Later we got into bed. The lights were off and I got on top of her.” source
