A stranger approaches a woman waiting on a street corner
'Excuse me, how do I get there?' the stranger asks.
The woman looks at the stranger. He seems familiar. He might be someone she once knew.
'Where?' she asks, 'where is 'there'?'
'My problem exactly,' he replies.
'Is there something in particular that you're hoping to find there?' she asks.
'Well, ma'm,' he replies, 'in fact there is.'
'Well,' the woman on the corner says, smiling at the stranger, 'that makes things easier.'
