"...I didn't have the same urgency they had to get to it, but then one day, just like that, I thought, I get it now. I'd be interested in other stuff. But I'd missed the time when most people around my age had paired off. It was as if I'd misread the schedule at Penn Station and the trains to Happy Couplehood had all left already, and there I was with nothing to do but sit with the drunk businessmen at the bar and nurse a warm beer and wait for the trains to start up again. I waited and waited and waited for those trains."
