–    D’you like my bike?
–    Yes – it’s a fine bicycle.
–    I think it’s very nice.
–    But – why did you buy it?
–    I didn’t buy it. I’ve hired it for a fortnight.
–    But why? You don’t like cycling – or any kind of exercise.
–    Well, Myra likes cycling. And I like Myra.
–    Does Myra like you?
–    In a fortnight she might – if I’m still alive.
