ROUND UP

I told him, I said, ` I'm not as dumb as I look.' She died Friday night."
" Who? " asked the man in bed.
" The woman ; the case I was on," said bliss Lyons.
" And what did the doctor say when you told him you weren't as dumb as you look? "
" I don't remember," said Miss Lyons. " He said, ` I hope not,' or something. What could he say? Gee! It's quarter to seven. I hadn't no idear it was so late. I must get busy and fix you up for the night. And I'll tell Miss Halsey to take good care of you. We're going to see `What Price Glory?' I'm going with my G. F. Her B. F. gave her the tickets and he's going to meet us after the show and take us to supper.
" Marian-that's my G. F.-she's crazy wild about him. And he's crazy about her, to hear her tell it. But I said to her this noon-she called me up on the phone-I said to her, ` If he's so crazy about you, why don't he propose? He's got plenty of money and no strings tied to him, and as far as I can see there's no reason why he shouldn't marry you if he wants you as bad as you say he does.' So she said maybe he was going to ask her tonight. I told her, 'Don't be silly! Would he drag me along if he was going to ask you?'
" That about him having plenty of money, though, that's a joke. He told her he had and she believes him. I haven't met him yet, but he looks in his picture like he's lucky if he's getting twenty-five dollars a week. She thinks he must be rich because he's in Wall Street. I told her, I said, ` That being in Wall Street don't mean nothing. What does he do there? is the question. You know they have to have janitors in those buildings just the same like anywhere else.' But she thinks he's God or somebody.
" She keeps asking me if I don't think he's the best looking thing I ever saw. I tell her yes, sure, but between you and I, I don't believe anybody'd ever mistake him for Richard Barthelmess.
" Oh, say ! I saw him the other day, coming out of the Algonquin ! He's the best looking thing ! Even better looking than on the screen. Roy Stewart."
" What about Roy Stewart? " asked the man in bed.
" Oh, he's the fella I was telling you about," said Miss Lyons. "
He's my G. F.'s B. F."
" Maybe I'm a D. F. not to know, but would you tell me what a B. F. and G. F. are? "
