Star-crossed lovers



Will Shake was the first cousin of Milk Shake, the owner of the Hampton Diner.  Will, was a frequent visitor to his cousin’s establishment and mostly sat alone in the furthest corner where he had a good view of all the other patrons.  He enjoyed watching courting couples, holding hands across the table whilst gazing longingly into each other’s eyes.

On one occasion, a pretty young girl wearing a floral dress, puffed out by many layers of petticoats, left her companion and skipped jauntily into the lady’s room.  When, after a long time she did not re-emerge, her eager beau became concerned.  He approached the door on which hung a gold star partly obscured by a large cross.  He stopped, straining to listen for any sound from inside.  Eventually, he could restrain himself no longer, and called out in a loud voice, “Juliet, Juliet, wherefore art thou Juliet?” 

The door burst angrily open and an enraged Juliet emerged, “That’s supposed to be my line, stupid.  I never want to see you again!”
