: Francis, I am in so much trouble. Francis

: I just found out what Gretchen is getting me for our anniversary. She knows how much I love cuckoo clocks, so she called the factory in Innsbruck and somehow convinced them to hand-craft a cuckoo clock with a little Otto and a little Gretchen that come out and kiss every hour! Francis
: Wow. What'd you get her? Otto
: Some Dust-Buster filters and a bracelet I saw on QVC.
