A no-nonsense proposal

          "I spoke  to you about this  the other day, if you remember. You'll agree that if there's trouble around, you're sure to get into it?"
          Crispin found it impossible to deny this. From early manhood he and trouble had been inseparable companions.
          "So you need a wife."
          "I do."
          "Try me," said Barney [Bernadette].

(from The Girl in Blue, by Sir Pelham Wodehouse)
