Scammers Online, Or How to Buy and Borrow Safely

Wednesday, 26 December 2018 22:58

Despite complex and highly reliable security systems, financial fraud still does exist. It may be unpleasant to lose your wallet in the street or have your smartphone stolen, but it’s even more depressing to lose money online. Here are the main dangers that await the unprepared.

Fake Online Shops

Sometimes, scammers put a lot of money into promoting fake online shops. Of course, you won’t find these ads on TV or on billboards, but they may appear on websites you visit, and, less often, on social networks. In these shops, you may see pictures and descriptions of things you’re interested in buying: clothing, food, household appliances, etc. The prices there may be tempting as well. But when a customer orders something from one of these sites and pays in advance, he gets nothing in return. These kinds of website don’t last long, and even if the owners are caught, they often just create new fake online shops.

Phishing

Imagine that you’ve decided to take out a payday loan from a respected and long-existing online company. You find the website, everything looks normal and legitimate, but…something’s wrong. You choose the amount of money, type in all the necessary information, and press “Send,” but you don’t get any confirmation or money within the hour or even in three days. What this means is that you accidentally went to an exact copy of the website you wanted to go to and this fake website was created by fraudsters to steal your information.

Sometimes, victims even let the scammers know their credit card’s PIN number! When that happens, it’s a serious problem. It means that online thieves have full access to your finances. So if this happens to you, immediately:

• Contact your bank

• Block your credit card

• Call the police as soon as possible

If the police track the IP address of the scammers, they may catch them.

How Can We Buy and Borrow Safely?

1. Use only known and reliable online shops and loan companies.

2. Never enter your PIN code. Anywhere.

3. Be attentive when you use a website for the first time.

4. Read reviews of the companies whose services you use.

Destiny

Monday, 24 December 2018 19:08

Destiny / fate (whatever you call it) is capricious and ever changing. It has different effects at different times, but it also has different effects on different people. For some people, it shows up regularly, to give them a fresh dose of hope. Then there are some people who it never takes notice of. These people live calm and quiet lives and enjoy their simple joys. And then there are other people who destiny pays too much attention to.

Sam Brown really wanted to be invisible. But destiny never gave him that opportunity.

He was tall, thin, and with fiery red hair, and so he stood out in any team photo. He had to endure the same jokes about his appearance over and over again, and in the meantime, he patiently waited for his peers to become mature and to quit their stupid jokes. Eventually the jokes about his appearance went away, but they were just replaced by newer jokes.

For example, people found it comical that he always used to sing songs with his last name in the title (like “John Brown’s Body” and “Sweet Georgia Brown”) at talent shows. And “educated” people would ask him, with a smirk, if his uncle, a famous writer, would give them an autograph. Sam was always surprised when it happened. Why did they want his uncle’s autograph? What would they do with it? And why not his aunt’s autograph? She could sign her name just as well as his uncle could.

Although Sam was accustomed to the constant attention, he nevertheless tried to hide from his fate. Therefore, he got a job in a supermarket and worked in the back. He assumed that in the warehouse, he would interact with fewer people and hear fewer dumb jokes.

But even in the warehouse, fate found him.

One day he went to the bank to make a regular payment on a loan and he was surprised to hear that his account had been blocked. When he asked who had blocked it, they told him it was the police.

Sam Brown had never dealt with the police before. Even about speeding. But then again, Sam didn't have a car. Well, there’s a first time for everything. Sam called the police and asked why they’d blocked his account. They told him he was suspected of several crimes and they asked him to come to the police station voluntarily.

He went.

After two hours of talking, it turned out that a mistake had been made and that the suspect was actually a completely different Sam Brown. Our Sam Brown, accustomed to the unexpected twists and turns of destiny, politely asked when his bank account would be unblocked. He was told that the procedure would take two to three days. Sam said that such a delay was unacceptable, because he had to make a loan payment the following day. The police told him that nothing could be done and that he had to just wait.

At that moment, Sam Brown lost it and started shouting. He yelled about his rights, that they couldn’t do this to him, etc., etc. He did a lot of yelling. Then he calmed down. Then they offered him coffee.

Sam was no fan of coffee. So he quickly left and went back to his job. He walked past his boss, past the staff, and over to the back where the unloading ramp was. There he saw his friend Mark, who was carefully looking at a state map.

"What's new?" Sam asked.

"Our state has some pretty cool city names!" Mark answered, still looking at the map.

"Do those cool cities have banks?" Sam asked, thinking about his problem.

"I suppose so. Why? You already have a bank account, don’t you?" Mark asked, looking up at Sam.

“My bank…doesn't love me,” Sam said, and then briefly explained his situation.

"That’s not a problem,” Mark said and shrugged. "Listen. I’ll tell you what you have to do."

Sam listened and even wrote down a web address. Then he went to a computer, typed https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got money. The next day, he used that money to make his loan payment.

He also did another thing. A very unexpected thing. He bought a lottery ticket.

His reasoning was thus: "If fate is testing my strength and it hasn’t broken me, well, maybe I can test fate.”

Let's hope that fate / destiny gives Sam a break. Sam sure needs it.

Black Friday

Monday, 17 December 2018 17:44

Understanding is the key to a healthy relationship. If a husband and wife understand each other, the bond is strong and they can withstand any blows of fate.

"Do you know Black Friday is the day after tomorrow?" Marcy asked.

"If today is Wednesday,” answered Andy, “then the day after tomorrow is Friday.”

He was unsuccessfully trying to repair a toaster.

"You don’t understand,” Marcy said. “The day after tomorrow is BLACK FRIDAY!"

"So what? Do you want me to wear black or something?" Andy couldn’t figure out why the wiring in the toaster went left instead of the normal right.

"They’re going to have deals on everything!"

"Including toasters?"

"Yeah, toasters too, I guess. We can get a new one on Friday."

"But if I fix this one,” Andy said, “we won’t have to buy a new one. Self-sufficiency is a matter of principle.”

"No, it’s not. If they’re selling toasters 70 percent off, we’ll buy a toaster."

"Even if we don't need one?"

"How can you know if you need something until you buy it? Once you buy it, then you know.”

“What? I wasn’t listening,” Andy said, fiddling around with the toaster. "What did you say?”

“It doesn't matter,” Marcy dismissed the question. "The point is they’re having big discounts. On everything."

"On cheese? You know I love unusual cheese."

"I’m afraid there will be no discounts on cheese. But as for electronics, clothes...hey, do you want me to buy you a new T-shirt? If it’s 70 percent off?"

"No."

"Why not?"

“Well, if a shirt is 70 percent off, then there must be something wrong with it.”

"You don't understand marketing at all!"

Andy kept working on the toaster.

Marcy excitedly walked around the kitchen, then stopped and quickly turned to Andy.

"Do you have any money on your card?"

"No, I get paid next week. Why do you ask?"

"Oh, no reason. Hmm. Well, where did you get the money for your tool kit?"

Andy told her. Then Marcy went to a computer, typed https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money.

Andy didn't fix the toaster that day. And he didn’t fix the toaster the next day. But at 5 a.m. on Friday, Marcy entered the local megastore and bought a lot of stuff that was 70 percent off.

Andy never did find out the full extent of his wife’s Black Friday shopping purchases. But the important thing was that Marcy was happy. And they had a working toaster once again.

Seventies Party

Friday, 14 December 2018 15:07

If a woman sets her heart on doing something, she’ll do it. Even if she has to make some sacrifices.

Claire and Bruce met at a party given by their mutual friends. Or maybe they didn’t have any mutual friends. Who knows? The important thing is that Claire and Bruce both showed up at a party where neither knew anybody there.

Of course, at a noisy, fun, and alcohol-fueled party, it’s sometimes hard to understand the person you’re talking to. But Claire immediately understood Bruce. Behind his external coldness, aloofness, and even occasional rudeness, she saw a sensitive, vulnerable heart. A heart that could respond to someone else’s trouble and empathize, but was itself protected by an armor of indifference. Calire saw Bruce as he was and she accepted him. She liked him too.

However, their relationship developed unevenly. Sometimes Bruce would call her every day, telling her everything that was going on in his life, suggesting they meet, and then meeting. But sometimes he would disappear for a week or two and not even answer her calls. At first, Claire excused Bruce’s behavior, but then it began to annoy her. She wanted at least a little stability in her life.

When she realized she couldn’t get any stability from Bruce, she decided to take the situation into her own hands.

As often as possible, every man should remind his woman that she is the most beautiful in the woman in the world. And if the man does not say these words, then the woman has to remind the man to do so.

One day, Bruce invited Claire to a seventies-themed party their mutual friends were giving. Claire knew that Bruce liked the music of the seventies, as well as the style and atmosphere of the seventies. She was a 21st-century woman with 21st-century tastes, but she looked around and found a website where she could buy seventies-style clothes for the party. She found some thigh-high boots and a short, colorful dress. She imagined getting a new hairstyle and putting on make-up and was pleased with how she thought she’d look. There remained two things left to do: she had to wait for the day of the party and she had to go the party with Bruce.

Claire waited as long as she could - three days. Then, unable to hold out any longer, she went to Bruce’s friend, Dirk the music store guy.

"Hi!" Claire waved and then immediately turned to the topic at hand. "When was the last time you saw Bruce?"

"A week ago. Maybe two weeks ago," Dirk shrugged. "Why? Is he missing?"

“No,” Claire shook her head. "It’s just we agreed to go to a seventies-themed party, but he didn't tell me when it would take place."

“Oh. It’s tomorrow,” said Dirk.

"What?!" Claire was so surprised she dropped her purse. "Tomorrow?”

"Tomorrow," repeated Dirk. “Here’s the address and the invitation,” he said and turned the computer monitor toward Claire.

"But how...there’s not enough time..." Claire said, looking very confused.

"Not enough time for what? Did he forget to tell you?"

"No, he told me," Claire said and pulled herself together. "It’s just my dress...I guess I’ll have to buy it today. I just don’t have enough money on my card."

"You can’t imagine how many times I hear people say it. But look, it’s not a problem at all."

Dirk showed Claire what to do. Claire went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money. Then she bought the dress and boots and went to her hairstylist.

And then she went to the party. Everything was great: the music, the decorations, and the atmosphere itself. But best of all, of course, was Claire in her new dress and boots. Bruce appreciated her new outfit and told her she was the best-looking woman there. Then a half-hour later, he said it again. And as they were leaving the party, he said it a third time.

The Presentation

Wednesday, 12 December 2018 18:36

There are some simple rules in life that you should never forget. For instance: Wash your hands before you eat. Don’t cross the street when you shouldn’t. And look where you walk.

But Paul was too deep in his thoughts to follow that last maxim. He even decided, mid-walk, to pull his laptop out of his backpack in order to test some new idea. But no testing would take place that day. Because something happened that often happens when a person forgets the simple rules.

Paul tripped and fell. The asphalt was not harmed, but Paul's ambition was. And unfortunately, so was his laptop; it had broken in two. You don’t have to be a computer repairman to know that broken-in-two laptops are pretty darn broken.

Paul got up, brushed off his pants, and stood in the middle of the sidewalk, holding in his hands the two parts of what had until recently been his beloved laptop. People walked by, some bumped into him, others even yelled at him for blocking the way, but Paul could neither feel nor see nor hear. Until a policeman said something, that is.

"Sir, is there a problem?"

"Huh? Oh. I'm fine," Paul said, although he was not at all fine. He was in shock. One moment, he was going through life, happy as a turtle, with a wonderful future that he had been working toward for six months, and the next moment, it was all gone. What could he do?

He walked forward, pressing the laptop’s severed carcass to his chest, and then he suddenly turned down a side street. He pulled out his phone, although he had no idea who to call. He clicked the Call button and saw that the last person he’d talked to was Bruce. He decided immediately. He pressed the call button.

"What else do you want?" Bruce asked in a very displeased tone. "We’ve already gone over everything."

"Listen, I need your help! Can you help me?"

"Don’t yell! I can hear. Jeez. Well, what's the problem now?"

Bruce's calm, almost indifferent voice could sober up anyone. But not Paul and not today.

"Could you lend me your laptop for a few days?"

"What? Why?"

"Look, tomorrow I’ve got a presentation for investors and my laptop is broken. It's a nightmare!"

"Do you still have the presentation itself?"

"Of course. I always make a copy on a flash drive."

"Well, buy a new laptop then. What's the problem?"

"I don’t have the money to just go out and buy a brand new computer. And I need one tomorrow and if I don’t have one, I’m toast. All that time, all that work...”

"Shut up and listen," Bruce ordered. "What are your coordinates, soldier?"

Paul told him.

“There’s a music store not far from you, just two clicks north. There’s an employee there, goes by the name of Dirk. Tell him I sent you. He’ll explain everything. Do I make myself clear, Private?!”

“Sir, yes, sir!” Paul yelled, hung up, and ran in the right direction.

Dirk really did explain everything and then he allowed Paul to use his computer. Paul went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money. Then he bought a laptop.

The next day, Paul gave a presentation to his investors and everything went gravy.

Afterwards, he joyfully glided out of the building and ran through the streets as if he were in a dream or a mid 50’s Technicolor musical. But then he suddenly stopped, remembering something. Maybe it was one of those simple rules that everyone should follow. He stood up straight, and barely restraining himself, he walked slowly, paying close attention to the world around him.

Do you still think that taking out a loan is difficult and inconvenient or that it involves waiting in lines and filling out documents? Well, everything’s changed! There are a lot of reliable online loan companies that have shortened the process and they’re ready to help you any time of day, any day of the week. You won’t be able to receive huge amounts of money immediately, but you’ll be able to cover your current expenses and needs without having to wait for a paycheck or help from relatives.

The advantages of online loan companies:

• Fast Process (less than an hour)

• Availability for the unemployed or clients with negative credit history (companies approve more than 95 percent of applications)

• Flexible Conditions (even if your repayment is overdue, it’s best to cooperate with the company instead of waiting for debt collectors)

• Online Contract (you can get a loan without walking out the front door)

So What Do You Need to Apply for The Loan?

1. Visit the site from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Many companies have a loan calculator on their website that will help you calculate what the loan repayment will be, based on the amount and duration of the loan.

2. Fill in the form with your personal information, the loan amount, and the terms of loan repayment (the duration of the repayment schedule, whether it’s gradual or full repayment).

3. Wait for approval and instantly get the money on your debit card. Use your money.

The Dinner Pt. 2

Saturday, 17 November 2018 20:08

"Imagine that. He invited me to dinner!"

"Really? Did he say what restaurant?"

All women know how this conversation will play out. First, the smallest details of the invitation will be discussed and then it will be the events that preceded the invitation. If you’re a man and you aren’t familiar with such conversations, well, maybe it’s because you don’t need to be.

The young woman sharing the news was Megan. The young woman listening attentively was Molly.

These kinds of conversations are completely different from things like business negotiations where both parties try to stick to the same topic. Not only did these two friends want to talk about everything, they wanted to do so all at once.

"Is he the guy you told me about?"

"Yeah. Martin."

"Megan and Martin. I like it. What are you going to wear?"

"I don't know yet. Listen, I just saw the most beautiful purse!"

Some time was spent discussing the purse.

"And did you hear about the Prescotts?"

You probably don’t know who the Presscotts are, but it’s not important. Some time was spent discussing them.

"Do you think he’s thinking about getting serious?"

The “He” refers to Martin.

“I don’t know. He’s cute and caring and all, but sometimes he’ll disappear for a few days and not even send me a text.”

"Yeah, they do that."

The "They" refers to "all men."

"Well, does he love you?"

"If he does, he hasn’t told me."

“Yeah, it’s difficult for them."

The “Them” refers to the “They.”

After a while, the friends returned to the start of the conversation. But of course they didn’t focus on the dinner itself, but rather on what Megan would wear.

They discussed every little thing. It was agreed that the three days left before the dinner would be enough for a haircut and a manicure. Molly said she’d lend Megan her good shoes, the same ones Megan had noticed a long time ago, but had never had a good enough reason to borrow. Then rings, earrings, and bracelets were discussed. They had everything they needed. Everything except the most important thing: the dress.

"You can borrow one of mine," suggested Molly.

“No, it’s a dinner. They won’t work,” Megan said, firmly, since she knew Molly’s wardrobe by heart.

"What about the new red one? With the bare shoulders? Do you remember it?"

"No, I don't."

"Well, come over and take a look," Molly said.

"But what if, sometime in the future, you, me, and Martin are at a café or something and you forget that you lent me that dress and so you wear it? He’ll recognize it and then he’ll realize that I went on a date in somebody else's dress. Like Cinderella!"

"Yeah, it’s a problem. I guess you have to buy a new dress," Molly said.

"But the dinner is in three days. Where am I going to get the money in time?"

"Well, that’s not a problem," Molly said. "Get your butt over here and I'll show you what to do.

Megan got her butt over to Molly’s apartment and Molly showed her what to do. Then Megan went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money. The friends went shopping and Megan bought a beautiful new dress and lots of other things.

On Saturday morning, Molly gave Megan a call.

"Hi," Megan answered, in a whisper.

"It’s Molly. How was ‘The Dinner?’"

Then Molly heard a cell phone ring on the other end of the line and a sleepy male voice say, “Hello?"

"I'll call you back later," Molly said and hung up.

She smiled. The dinner had been a success.

The Dinner Pt. 1

Thursday, 15 November 2018 16:39

Who knows how many life-altering conversations have taken place in the break room? At meetings, people talk only about work, but in the break room, they talk about life.

Andy was the first person that day to visit the break room. What Andy wanted was to warm up a little, have a cup of coffee, and maybe eat a cookie if Janet hadn’t already eaten them all. But soon after he entered the room, Martin showed up. And he wasn’t there for coffee; he was there for Andy.

Martin and Andy worked in different departments, but their paths often crossed in the cramped corridors and they had a warm, collegial friendship. Andy was a couple of years older than Martin and slightly higher than Martin on the hierarchical ladder, but that wasn’t the reason that Martin looked up to him and listened when he talked. It was because Andy was married, and Martin hadn’t yet achieved that milestone.

"Hello there!" Martin said to Andy's back.

"Hi," Andy said, turning around. "Are you cookie-hunting too?"

"No, not really...I mean, what I’m hunting isn’t a cookie..." Martin hesitated, not knowing how to start this conversation. Then he suddenly switched gears and said, emphatically, "Actually, I was looking for you."

"Oh yeah?" Andy was surprised. "I thought they made everything clear at the meeting."

"Oh, I'm not talking about work. I have a personal question."

"I’m feeling great. My love life is better than great. What other personal questions could you be too embarrassed to ask?"

"Well, there’s this girl..."

“My bad. I can tell this is a serious matter,” Andy sat down at the table and waved toward the other chair. "Tell me what the problem is, my young apprentice."

"There’s this girl...we’ve been dating for several months, and I want to take it to the next level. Do you get what I’m saying? I want to show her that I’m serious about our relationship.”

"Well, go on. What’s the problem?"

"I don’t know how to go about it."

"Invite her to a nice restaurant. Then, near the end, after a couple of glasses of wine, tell her how you feel."

"But I don't know what to say," Martin said and threw up his hands. "You’re good with words."

“You're focusing on the wrong thing,” Andy said, stood up decisively, and looked at his watch. "Come on, it's lunch. We’ve got time."

"Time for what?"

"For shopping."

"Shopping for what?"

"For the usual. We’ll get you a suit, a shirt…definitely a tie."

"Why? I’ve already got those things!" Martin was close to panicking.

"Look, you invite this girl to a restaurant." Andy sat down again at the table and looked into Martin's eyes to be more convincing. "And what’s she going to do? She’s going to get a new haircut, put on her best make-up, wear her best dress, her best shoes, her best jewelry, et cetera. And she’s going to mentally prepare for a few days. And then, when she gets there, what’s she going to see? You in a hoodie and jeans."

"But I have a suit," Martin protested.

"It’s not a date-at-a-restaurant suit. It’s an office suit. Don’t you want to make your girlfriend happy?"

"Of course."

"Then get dressed. Show her what feats you’re ready to accomplish for her."

The word "feats" struck Martin on the spot.

"I would do anything, any feats, for her," he said, and then he stood up and followed Andy.

Two men on mission can go shopping pretty quickly and these two were no different. Martin trusted Andy completely. The only resistance he put up was the suggestion he buy pants and socks, a suggestion he deemed unnecessary.

"Well, a start has been made," said Andy contentedly as they returned to the office. "Now we need to book a table at the restaurant."

“I don’t know any good restaurants,” Martin said.

Andy told him which restaurant it would be and it was one that Martin knew.

"But that’s an expensive place!" Martin exclaimed, dropping the bag of clothes to the floor.

"Martin,” Andy said, “There are restaurants and then there are RESTAURANTS.”

Andy scrolled on his phone, looking up the phone number for the restaurant, "Is Friday good?"

"I don't know. I haven’t asked her."

"Then call and ask. No, wait," Andy stopped himself. “You don’t need to ask. Just say: ‘Let’s have dinner on Friday. I’ll pick you up at your work.' Have you got that all down?”

"Yeah."

"Do it!”

"Wait!"

A storm seemed to be raging in his mind and he struggled with his remaining doubts. "So this means I’m going to have to pay for dinner?"

"That’s usually how it works."

"But I just spent all my money on these clothes you said I needed. And payday is next week."

“No problem,” Andy said and he showed Martin what to do.

Martin went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money.

On Saturday morning, Andy ran on the treadmill for a half an hour, poured himself a protein shake, and then called Martin. The phone rang several times and then he heard Martin’s sleepy voice: "Hello?"

"Hey, it’s Andy. So how did everything go? Good, bad, horrible?"

"Uh, right now’s not a good time…I’ll call you back,” Martin started to say.

"I see," Andy said. "Another happy landing.”

Fishing

Thursday, 08 November 2018 13:16

"Hey, how have you been?"

"Good. How about you?"

When old friends meet after a long time apart, it makes for uninteresting dialogue. Such encounters usually include pattings on the shoulder, references to old acquaintances, and plenty of raised eyebrows. We will spare you the details.

Back in college, Frank and Ben were called "Frank and Bank." They were also called "Tweedledee and Tweedleedum."

Being friends, they naturally hung out with each other, were always ready to help each other, and if they could have admitted it to themselves, cared about each other. But at the same time they had a kind of sibling rivalry. Each wanted to be better, stronger, and smarter than the other. Frank was first in most things, but occasionally Ben was.

So it was natural that Frank got married first. Not much later, his wife gave birth to a daughter, and his wife and his daughter would often spend the weekend together doing mother-daughter stuff. Ben, however, was a still a bachelor and his weekends were free.

"Do you remember how we used to go fishing?" asked Frank.

"Of course, I remember," answered Ben. "And I also remember that I always caught more fish than you."

"It’s time for a rematch then," Frank said.

Frank was only half-serious, but Ben didn’t notice.

"What do you mean?" Ben asked.

"Well, how about we go fishing this weekend?" Frank suggested.

"But, you see..." Ben began, but Frank interrupted him.

"You said you were free."

“I am,” said Ben.

"So let’s go fishing. Like in the good old days."

Ben couldn’t find an adequate answer.

"So let’s do it,” Frank said. “Do you have a fishing rod?"

“Of course, I do,” Ben answered, but then he immediately remembered that he didn’t.

"Great. And a good chair?"

"Of course."

Ben answered all of Frank's questions in the affirmative, although he didn’t have half the things Frank asked him about. He’d wanted to buy fishing equipment for a long time, but he’d never gotten around to it.

"So it’s agreed then? We’re going to go fishing?" Frank asked.

"Of course. Yeah. Of course, we’re going," said Ben, absentmindedly.

“Oh, by the way,” Frank said. "Do you know what short-term loans are? Somebody told me about them recently. They’re pretty useful. There’s a good company I could recommend.”

“What’s the company?” Ben asked, realizing that fishing without a fishing rod was a difficult endeavor and understanding that a short term loan would be helpful in such a situation.

Frank told him the name of the company and Ben made a mental note to himself. When he got home, he went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money to buy the fishing equipment.

Unfortunately, it rained that Saturday and the rain continued until Monday. Thus, the old friends did not go fishing. But Ben still enjoyed looking at his fishing rod and imagining how, in the not-too-distant future, he would catch more fish than Frank.

The Seashore

Thursday, 01 November 2018 21:46

Everybody has a dream. The dream may be big or small. The dreamer may be aware or unaware of his dream. But the main thing is that every person has a dream.

Andrew was a modest man, without much ambition, and not very confident. In fact, it’s a bit surprising that one day he mustered up the courage to talk to a young woman called Molly. Even more surprisingly, Molly gave him her number and even agreed to go on a date. And after the first date, she went on a second, and after the second, etc., etc.

Molly was decisive. If she thought that something had to be done, she did it. If she thought that something had to be obtained, she got it. But for some reason, Molly was bold in everything except when it came to Andrew. She would gently hint that Andrew should be a go-getter like her. Then Andrew would gently object and list a number of reasons why he couldn’t do such-and-such until later. Molly would drop the topic and that’s how they discussed things.

One night, they were watching a movie about a tragic, all-consuming love. The plot didn’t interest Andrew, but the setting did; it took place on the coast. When the end credits started rolling, Molly sighed heavily, probably feeling bad for the heroine of the movie. Andrew sighed too, for a different reason.

"Why are YOU sighing?" Molly asked.

“It doesn't matter,” Andrew answered.

“No, it does matter,” said Molly. "Tell me. Why did you sigh? Do you feel sorry for her?"

"Who is ‘her’?”

"The main actress."

"Oh…no."

"Well, do you think he acted right?"

"Who do you mean by ‘he’?”

"The main actor."

"Oh. No, it doesn't matter. They have their lives. I have mine."

"Then why did you sigh?”

"You really want to know?”

"Of course!"

"I’ve never been to the ocean."

"What?"

Molly was at a loss for words – a rare situation indeed.

"Yeah. I’ve never walked along the beach."

"But it’s only…it’s not even that far away…” Molly managed to say.

"I know. It’s close. But still," Andrew said.

“Well, we’ll go to the seashore this weekend,” Molly decided.

"But it’ll cost a lot and I don’t have time to raise money for the trip," Andrew began making excuses.

“Well, I’m a big girl,” Molly said. "I can pay for myself.”
