David Nicholls Quotes: They Ended Up In A Amusement Arcade On

They Ended Up In A Amusement Arcade On Old Compton Street, Where Nora Insisted Stephen Join Her On One Of Those Dance-step Machines, And As He Stood Next To Her, Stomping Out A Dance Routine On The Illuminated Dance Floor, He Had A Sudden Anxiety That Nora Might Be One Of Those Kooky, Free-spirit Types, The Kind Of Irreverent Life-force Who, In The Imaginary Romantic Comedy Currently Playing In His Head, Turns The Hero's Narrow Life Upside Down, Etc., Etc. The Acid Test For Free-spirited Kookiness Is To Show The Subject A Field Of Fresh Snow; If They Flop On Their Backs And Make Snow-angels, Then The Test Is Positive. In The Absence Of Snow, Stephan Resolved To Keep An Eye Open For Other Tell-tale Kookiness Indicators: A Propensity For Wacky Hats, Zany Mismatched Socks, Leaf-kicking, A Disproportionate Enthusiasm For Karaoke, Kite - Flying And Light-hearted Shoplifting, The Whole Holly Golightly Act.
