WHEN I WAS A CHILD, MY MOTHER WOULD CONSTANTLY FILL
MY BROTHER, SISTER AND MYSELF WITH BITS OF "NONSENSE,"
IN WHICH, I THINK, SHE REALLY BELIEVES. ONE OF
THESE BITS WAS, IF YOU TOOK A FRESH BUTTERCUP AND
HELD IT CLOSE UNDER A PERSON'S CHIN, THEN IF THE
PERSON'S CHIN SHOWED YELLOW (WHICH IN MY OPINION, IT
WOULD ALMOST HAVE TO, IF THE SUN WERE SHINING AND
REFLECTING ON THE BUTTERCUP), THEN THE PERSON WAS
MOST ASSUREDLY GOING TO GET MARRIED.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; FRASER
