"The twins grew up on lettuce and raisins and the rest of that junk, but I've never gotten used to it. We buy the stuff by the crate. But come, take the load off your feet." I sat down on this sofa that was filled with pillows with pictures of girls on them. "Did you say twins?" I asked, while Dawn sat next to me, making the sofa go down about a foot "The boys," she says, sort of offhand. "A splitting image of their daddy." ' "You don't say," I answered. "Milo is sure lucky. I wanted a boy, but I got a girl. She's six and a half, going on seven." "The boys will be six next birthday. They are down at the Y, working out, but tell me about yourself. You look in condition, but I thought I knew every wrestler in the business." T shook rny head, interrupting her. "I take exercises regular, but I'm in insurance." "What do you mean, in insurance? You sell it?" "I try to sell it. There is something in insurance which is called buyer's resistance, which is harder to snap out of than a toe hold." "And who did you marry- that blonde lady wrestler Milo told me about?" That seemed a silly question, as I couldn't imagine being married to anybody but Betty Jane, but I explained, "That must have been Ruby Jewell, who was nothing but a passing fancy, tf even that. No. I married Betty Jane Blan*, as she has always been rny one true love." "The one that didn't like wrestling? Milo told me about her, too. Said §he would spoil your mat career, and it seems that she known, you could have bought your last policy from him. I mean the one on your mustache." I must have looked bewildered, because Dawn explained, "TVIilo has it insured for 5100,000. as without it he would just be a Greek hash slinger like he was i before I married him and made ndi>. i v.; — She seemed about to say something else when there was a noise downstairs. "Here comes Milo now, Honey- boy, he will sure be glad to see you, but I want to say something quick. After eating all that lettuce he will want you to eat. he wiD be very sleepy and need to take a nap before he wrestles tonight. Come over about 7:30 and we'll have a couple of steaks together in the restaurant downstairs. could happen to a mustache?" I said, and she said: "You'd be surprised To rip out his mustache or even half of it is the goal of his adversaries, which if they did it would cost the insurance company plenty." "It sure is good to see Fed," Milo sort of repeated himseLL "Him see twins, Katina?" While we were talking it came out that this was Dawn's real name. When she said that I ?

"Unless you want to be helped by him having just run caught with lettuce and raw oat- flve miles. He looked just the same as always except for his mustache. Somehow his mustache made Milo look ferocious, and not funny, like he used to. "Come 'morrow night. Milo fly meal, this is the time to scram,* but before I could do so.
