"What's the name of that store again? It starts with an 'A,'" Lorraine asked. Quinn didn't know, either. It was a four- or five-syllable word that didn't have anything to do with clothes. Yet it was a well-known, upscale clothing chain for women.

"Why can't they just name it something simple, like Ross Dress for Less?" Quinn said. "Everyone can remember that name!" He suggested a couple of names—Apostrophe, Apology. No, Lorraine told him, neither was right. "Well," Quinn said, "let's go to the ‘A-store,' and then we'll read the sign and remember the name again, at least until we leave the store."

The name of the store was Anthropologie. It was on South Lake. Once inside, Lorraine started browsing through the clothes; Quinn headed straight toward one of various piles of books with catchy titles for sale. Lorraine called him over to look at a pair of slacks. "How much?" she asked. He guessed $55. She told him they were four times that much. He replied that he wouldn't pay more than $25 for them. She laughed. "You're so cheap," she said.

He picked up a book called How to Act Like a Lady, and started reading it. It would be a good book for Lorraine to practice her English and also for her to learn how to act in America, her new country. Lorraine came over with three tops and asked him to accompany her to the dressing room area.

Quần áo mới (1)

"Tên của cửa hàng đó là gì ấy nhỉ? Nó bắt đầu bằng chữ 'A," Lorraine hỏi. Quinn cũng không biết. Nó có bốn hay năm chữ không liên quan gì đến quần áo. Dù nó là một nơi nổi tiếng, một dãy bán quần áo cao cấp cho phụ nữ.

"Sao họ không gọi nó bằng cái tên gì đơn giản, như là quần áo Ross đơn giản?" Quinn nói. "Ai cũng nhớ tên đó!" Anh nói thử hai tên - Apostrophe, Apology. Không, Lorraine bảo anh, chẳng có cái nào đúng. "Vậy thì," Quinn nói, hãy đến cửa hàng -A,' và khi ấy chúng ta sẽ đọc bản hiệu và ghi nhớ lại, ít ra cho đến khi rời cửa hàng."

Tên cửa hàng là Anthropologie. Nó nằm ở South Lake. Khi đi vào, Lorraine bắt đầu lục tìm quần áo; Quin hướng thẳng đến một trong nhiều đống sách với tựa đề hấp dẫn để bán. Lorraine gọi anh đến xem một cặp áo có dây. "Bao nhiêu?" cô hỏi. Anh đoán $55. Cô bảo anh chúng đắt gấp bốn lần giá đó. Anh bảo là anh không trả hơn $25 cho chúng. Cô cười. "Anh thật bình dân," cô nói.

Anh nhặt cuốn sách tựa đề: Làm sao hành động như một quý bà, và bắt đầu đọc. Đó sẽ là một cuốn sách tốt cho Lorraine để thực tập tiếng Anh và cũng để cho cô học cách cư xử ở Mỹ, một đất nước còn mới với cô. Lorraine đến với ba bộ quần áo trên tay và kêu anh đi cùng đến khu vực thử đồ.
