MOZE: She just sittin’ in the trolley car and she reaches in her bag and pulls out this here magazine, and starts readin’.  Well she ain’t read more ‘n a couple pages when real slow and careful like, she takes off her shoes and stockin’s.  She turns the stockin’s wrong side out and then just up and puts them on again.  Then she puts on her shoes.  Now all the passengers are lookin’ on wonderin’ what’s goin’ on, see?  Well, finally this old fella leans over, see, and he taps her on the shoulder and he says “you pardon my sudden rudeness, ma’am, but why’d you just now go and indulge in this strange procedure?”  ‘N the girl says, “why, kind sir.  I was readin’ this here magazine and I found the story such hot stuff that I felt compelled to turn the hose myself.”
