A little note for fun

- We want to get married.
- You are very young.
- Our parents agree with us.
- Yes… yes…
- What form do we have to fill up?
- How old are you, Miss?
- Thirteen, Sir; we found out about it that, since the age of thirteen, I am allowed to get married.
- Hm, I see…
- Then, what do we have to do?
- Well…
- Please, Sir?
- Well…
- Please, Sir?
- Well… You must have come yesterday…
- Why, is the office closed? We can come back again tomorrow.
- Tomorrow…
- Or any other day; not too far ahead… We want so much to get married… we love each other… really.
Another employee came up. He is older, and looks like the head of the office:
- I am sorry, Miss, the law concerning the age of getting married has changed since this morning. You’ll have to wait some time.
- How much time, Sir?
- The age has been fixed at eighteen… you’ll have to wait for five years.
