Swift Encounter


"Dere's almost nowhere to sit," said the waiter almost deceitfully. "Is anyone sitting here, Miss?" asked Tom Swift charily. "No, there's room for you," replied Mary Shaftoe- Witt spaciously.

"I can't see a menu," said Tom listlessly. "It's not expensive," she cheeped, "But the curried lentils are off," she continued in a nodal manner.

"I've enjoyed my sweetcorn," she said huskily. "I must try harder to catch the Indian waiter's eye," said Tom, going off at a tangent, "I'll have the escalopes de veau", he revealed.

"I like your grey dress," said Tom ingratiatingly. "I prefer to wear casuals," Mary replied unsuitably.

"I'm a fishmonger," said Tom selfishly. "I work for Mr. Dingly, I'm sure you know old Stan," replied Mary understandingly. "I'm a journalist. Before that I was on the stage", she continued impressively but exactingly.

"I'm reading the great American poet, Walt Man," said Tom witlessly. "I've just finished Ray Illingworth's autobiography," responded Mary readily, "and I'm starting 'The Half Blood Prince'," she pottered on.

"I'd rather like to take you out tonight," said Tom in a rather dated manner. "I might be available," she replied impossibly. "Let's go to the theatre," she continued playfully.

"Rows one to seven are full, but I can still fit you in," the lady in the box office ruminated. "There's only just enough room left for us in this row," said Tom almost tearfully.

"Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks," leered the actor stormily.

"Would you like a Martini?" asked Tom drily at the interval. "And some cheese and onion flavour," replied Mary crisply.

"Your place or mine?" asked Mary afterwards, flatly. "I'll pay for the taxi," offered Tom handsomely.

"I'll open some champagne!" he bubbled. "How about a game of cards?" he added wistfully. "I'd rather have some more champagne!" said Mary a bit more fizzily.

"I'm going to take off all my clothes!" she pealed. "I've already got mine off," Tom barely managed to reply.

"It's all floppy," she said very softly. "But not for long!" he responded increasingly stiffly. "But it's only about four inches long!" she said rather shortly. "No, it's five and one-eighth," he said in a measured manner.

"Are you a virgin?" he asked piercingly. "No, you fool, I've still got my knickers on," she panted. "Sorry, I've taken them off now," he slipped in. "Oooh, that's nice!" she cried manfully.

"I'm coming!" he ejaculated. "Did the earth move for you?" he quaked. "That didn't last very long," she seconded briefly. "It's all I can manage for now," replied Tom limply, "I need a cigarette!" he fumed.

entire stories?? sheesh? I first did them in 1963, when one liners were the point.

"I'm giving up being a landlord while the employment situation at Boeing is so unstable", said Tom, vacantly.

(I also own an original copy of "Ton Swift & His Airship"

"The wind has died down," said Tom disgustedly.

"That's the last we'll see of Dr. Frankenstein's creature," said Tom demonstratively.

"Th-th-th-that's all, folks!" said Tom animatedly.

"I seem to have lost my watch," said Tom timelessly.

"I wish, I wish, I wish I were a fish," sang Mr Limpet finally.

"I hardly ever write letters by hand any more," she said typically.

"At least one day of the holiday was fine," said Tom restrainedly.

"It's all my fault. I should have spent more on the camping equipment," said Tom penitently.

"I'm against Britain adopting the Euro," he propounded.

"The light bulb needs replacing," Tom said darkly.

"I'm going to see a play by Oscar Wilde," said Tom earnestly.
