They caught a headline on the newspaper thrown across the table, and he went over to pick up the paper. He turned over the pages idly.
"You haven't kissed me once in the past hour."
Grant Hayes was no longer paying attention. He had caught a glimpse of an ad on an inner page, and he was avidly reading the details. Win Fame and Fortune! it shouted. It was almost as if the thing had been directed at him. His eyes glistened ashe read. No stupid routine work, no tiresome job without a future for a man of his talents. It was the kind of work that wasn't work at all-the kind he loved to do.
