        “What do you do?” he asked.

        She smiled. “I sell personal physical services.”

        “Oh,” he said. “What kind of personal physical services?” he asked.

        “I rent my body.” She did not elaborate.

        “Ah.” He was too weary to pursue it, to press her to explain just what she meant; he had an idea, though.

        Poor Richard Mayhew.  So utterly out of his depth for the entire book.
