I gave a pollster 20 minutes of my time this evening. Most of it was about presidential election politics and some about the American Red Cross. But then, this:

Pollster: If you could receive anything this Christmas, what would it be?

Me: Does it have to be material?

Pollster: Whatever you want to answer.

Me: Romance.

Pollster: Is that what you want to put?

Me: Yes. As a matter of fact, it is.
