                                      Another one of "those" John O'Hara Stories

On April 30, 1932, publication of "Days." The New Yorker. Files on Parade.

"After the first few days there the habits of living in a new place began to form. Larkin would lean over and kiss his wife good-bye, get out of the car, go inside the station, buy his paper at the news-stand, walk through the station, and stand out there waiting for the train. He liked to get that much air anyway, and that was how he began to notice her."

"Her" happens to be that beautiful woman he notices on the commuter train each morning. The rest of the story concerns Mr. Larkin's fantasies and plans and plots to try to meet "her."
