Another no.
By Grant Baciocco

Roger hung up the phone and sighed.

“Another no.” He said to himself.  With his left hand he held the ruler steady and with his right, drew a line through the name in the phone book.

He had been at this for years, but he knew it was worth it.  His father had always told him that hard work and persistence pays off.  He had now reached the “L” pages of the phone book and he had a good feeling that the law of averages were on his side.  He picked up the phone and punched in the next number.

Burlingame, June 5. A resident reported receiving unwanted marriage proposals over the phone.
