      Christina: So you did read my letter.
      Mae: Yeah, I never could resist one of the those things. Are you that way too?
      Christina: No, I don't read other peoples letters.
      Mae: Oh well, I was just trying to find your address.
      Christina: Did it read like a street number? After the first two words you must have known.
      Mae: Okay so it's none of my business. Look if I saw you walk in front of a truck, that's none of my business either, but I'd stop you. Let him go kid, I'm old enough to know what I'm talking about.
