"And don't forget to send it in care of your cousin George," she said.
When Alex asked Cora if she felt all right, she replied, "Of course. I feel fine."
But something was troubling her, he was sure.
She seemed to be waiting for something, but he had no idea what it was.
It didn't help any when she said, "Don't lose your way home tonight."
What did she mean by such a statement? Well, he guessed he'd just have to expect her to have her good days and
bad ones, like everyone else.
He couldn't expect her to be in excellent spirits every day of the year.
He had thought about Cora's strange manner as he sat looking out of the bus window on his way to work.
"Did I rub her the wrong way with something I said?" he asked himself.
No, it couldn't be that.
One thing about Cora; if she didn't like something he said, she let him know it.
However, once she had done so, she let bygones be bygones and everything was all right again.
She was always ready to meet him halfway when they had an argument, too -- which was seldom.
他们有争论时 -- 那是少有的，她也总是乐意让步。
No, today was different. But why?
Once at the office Alex became absorbed in his work and forgot his wife's strange manner.
Not until later, in Hartman's Department Store, did he think of it again.
The beautiful ruby-red bowl reminded him.
Suddenly he felt he had to buy this lovely piece of glassware for his wife.
Surely it would help her forget whatever was bothering her.
