Where is this? It’s not New York, that’s for sure. It might be India somewhere. She’s chasing after him. Is she jealous? He’s trying to kiss her while he’s dancing with her, but she’s not real sure, that’s why she’s pulling her head back.

He’s awful free with it.

Singapore, could be. The guy in the back is just standing there. One guy is jealous of the other guy. He doesn’t know it but he’s going to be caught. He’s just watching them.

I’m trying to remember where that skyline is. I’ve seen it before. It looks like Seattle. It might be. I’ve only seen Seattle in pictures or in movies. I’ve never been there.

I think it’s right here in this town. You’ve got to look for the skyscrapers.

This poor little lost soul is just looking for anything she can grab. The other one is saying, “I hope she doesn’t see me.” The other one is saying, “Don’t pay any attention to her.” It’s just simple as that.

Why is she going after the man? There’s no one else available at the moment.

The woman dancing is awfully tall. The woman dancing with the man is telling him not to pay attention to the other woman. Why would the woman want just any man? You want to watch them to be sure you’re going to get them.

The man is Hubert. Her name is Mineola. Just send them back. What is the other woman’s name? Mineola is the one running away. The one he’s dancing with is Crystal. What about the lone man in the background? He don’t know. His name doesn’t matter.

All the men are standing by the posts.

Mineola is telling the man in the back “Don’t jump! I’m right here. You don’t know me, but I’m right here.”

Hubert is exceptionally tall. What does Hubert do for a living? He chases women.

I don’t like that the people are in the way of the buildings. I’d like to see the buildings.

How high off the ground are they? They don’t care. The guy in the back threatens to jump every night to attract females, to get attention. Now Mineola is going to run over to him and he’s going to tell her he’s lonely, he needs somebody.

It’s a foggy day in London town. So it’s London. Yes, it’s London. Don’t you remember the old song a long time ago, it’s a foggy day in London town? When I met you the fog was so bad I couldn’t see you. Damn! Things would have been different.

There are a lot of buildings in the background. Where are they dancing? Could be a bridge. It’s not the top of a building; it’s a bridge over the top of the river. Any river. It’s a big one.

What are Hubert and Crystal talking about while they’re dancing? Where they’re going to go to bed. It looks to me like Mineola is too short for the guy in the back. Hubert can’t do much dancing with that heavy overcoat on. Maybe he’s cold. He’s not going to take it off to satisfy her. She’s all fired up. “Hey, here I am!” It doesn’t take much to fire her up. He’s just standing there.

What does Mineola do for a living? She’s got her arms up. She’s smiling. She says to the man in the back, “Yes, you and I. I’m ready for you.”

Hubert is tall. Girls like tall men. Most of them do. Do you look at really short guys when you’re out horsing around? You’re pretty tall.

Crystal is a very uncomfortable partner for a man to dance with. Look at where her hand is. It should be on his shoulder. She’s not with him. I think she’s lost there. You never put your hand on the man’s arm that way if you’re dancing. It should always be on his shoulder.

I don’t think she’s got much choice there. There’s some guy standing in the back. Another guy by the post. What is the guy in the back looking at? He’s looking at the water. He’s sick of looking at the river. He’s looking away. Well, it doesn’t look to me like a very good place to dance. It’s sloppy. Do you like to dance in the water?

Mineola asked the man in the back if he was stood up but he said he just missed the bus. Crystal said they should do something so he’s not moping all night long. Mineola goes to talk to the man and he says, “Where the hell did you come from?”

I don’t think any of the four or five guys look too appetizing. The way this guy’s grabbed a hold of this girl, I don’t think he really wants her. He’s not standing close enough to her. Not compared to the way men act today.

Why aren’t there more people there? I wonder that, too. They’re all in the buildings. It’s too cold to be outside. No, it’s just that time of day. She doesn’t look like it’s too cold.

I don’t think any of them look interested. Is it too early in the morning for others to be out? No, it’s evening. Nobody would be dancing around that early in the morning unless they’re nuts. Well, sometimes people are odd.

They’re going to have to go someplace else next. They need more people. Only one girl for five guys.

That isn’t England. Do you think it’s somewhere in America? It’s somewhere in Europe.

None of the people are very attractive.

It’s somewhere around us in Orlando on a roof. It doesn’t look like they’re worth too much. That’s not a rooftop. It’s just a patio, or a sidewalk. It’s too even with the rest of the buildings to be a rooftop.

It doesn’t seem like it’s a place for that type of people to be. They thought something else would be going on. They’re looking across.

Crystal has her arm up, so she’s just arrived. They’ve all just arrived. They haven’t really found company yet.

How should our story end? The guy in the back thinks he was stood up, so he walked down here to pout. “I’m not going to turn around and look at her. She’s got to come over here. Then I’ll tell her to get lost.”

They’re going to another deck next. What music are they listening to? There’s not a radio in sight, so the music must be coming from one of the buildings. What kind of music are they dancing to? I don’t think they’re dancing.

It looks like they’re in Spain to me. Those buildings are lonely looking. How should the story end? He turns around and says, “Get lost. You weren’t here when I wanted you here. Don’t do that to me.”

The man next to her is just standing there. And she’s happy.
