"It was a simple coincidence, of course, like many events that make us smile and which we forget every month of our lives. To me it seemed to contain some hidden significance, and I could not clear my mind of the impression. When my wife came back from the living room I turned to her with the book in my hand, having opened to the page on which I had been reading only the night before, and I held it out to her with a sort of boyish expectation that she was going to be immediately interested also."

"It was a simple coincidence, like thousands of events that make us smile and then forget about, but I could not clear my mind of the impression that it contained some hidden significance. When my wife returned from the kitchen, I held the book out to her, opened at the page where I had been reading the night before. I felt boyishly expectant that she would immediately be interested also." (72 words)
