The girl was very rich and the boy was poor but honest. She liked him, but that was all, and he knew it. One night he had been a little more tender than usual. "You are very rich," he ventured.
"Yes," she replied frankly, "I'm worth 1.25 million dollars."
"And I'm poor," he replied. "Will you marry me?"
"I thought you would say no."
"Then why did you ask me?"
"Oh, just to see how a man feels when he loses 1.25 million dollars."
