A Class Act

How do you follow
an act like Hello.

Note: I suppose that's why we linger over goodbyes, trying to wring a few last drops of drama out of them. A live, real hello holds such promise that, having failed, in our 2nd and 3rd acts (conversation, dinner, movies, love-making, etc.) to live up to that promise, we must hope for a tragic farewell. No wonder we get so many of them.

The proper act to follow hello is hello, and again hello. Even goodbye should be a form of hello.
