The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few is to be found in their industry, application,
and perseverance under the prompting of a brave , determined spirit ( Mark Twain )

Dinner for Two

Philip is a bachelor. He lives in small flat in Liverpool.
Philip not only enjoys eating food, he enjoys preparing it as well.
His favorite hobby is cooking. He has had so much practice , that he has become an  expert  cook.
His sister, Anne, called on him last Sunday evening. I was nearly dinner-time and Philip was in the kitchen. He was wearing an apron and preparing  a meal.
“You will stay to dinner, of course,” Philip said.
“I am starving !” Anne said. “Is there enough food for both of us?”
“I hope so,” Philip answered.
Anne lifted the lid of the saucepan.”hm..,” she said. It smells delicious. What is it?”
“It’s a Mexician dish,” Philip said, “Very special.”
“You will be a good husband to some lucky women,” Anne remarked.
“I don’t know about that, “Philip answered. “But this dish ought to be good. I’ve been preparing it for five hours.”
“There’s  enough food here for ten people!”Anne said as she looked into the saucepan.
“Are you expecting company?”
“No, “Philip replied, “ I was going to eat it all myself.”
