A time traveler


Dear Hillary,

What’s the usual thing over here when going out with a girl for the first time? Are you expected to bring flowers or anything? Met a really nice girl so I want to appear as a gentleman, not like the yobbos I see round the place.


Dear Art,

(Not Garfunkel is it?), have you just stepped out of a time capsule or something? Nobody brings flowers on a first date. That went out of style 50 years ago. Just be on time, clean and polite. All the best young man. I hope she is as old-fashioned as you are.
