LEGEND

THE INFORMANT, MY FATHER, RETURNED FROM A TRIP TO BUFFALO, NEW YORK
AND WHILE AT THE SUPPER TABLE RELATED THIS INCIDENT WHICH I TOOK TO
TO BE TRUE. MY FATHER, HAVING TIME ON HIS HANDS IN BUFFALO, WENT FOR
A WALK. HE OBSERVED A SIGN INDICATING THAT A DANCE WAS BEING HELD
TO RAISE FUNDS FOR DEAF PEOPLE. HE ENTERED THE ESTABLISHMENT AND
PURCHASED A NUMBER OF TICKETS. HE APPROACHED A GIRL AND THROUGH A
SERIES OF GESTURES (WHICH HE DEMONSTRATED FOR US) MANAGED TO
COMMUNICATE TO HER THAT HE DESIRED TO DANCE. THEY DANCED SEVERAL
DANCES IN COMPLETE SILENCE, WHEREUPON A YOUNG MAN WALKED UP
TO THE GIRL AND ASKED HER IF SHE WERE READY TO LEAVE. SHE TURNED
HER FACE AWAY FROM MY FATHER AND REMARKED, "I WILL BE WITH YOU AS
SOON AS I GET RID OF THIS DAMN DUMMY."
