Small Problems: Times and Places

Jacob and Trish were sitting on their hill, in the broad field at the end of their motley neighborhood, watching the sun set over the distant pines.

“There’s a time and place for everything,” said Trish. “This is neither the time nor the place.”

“If this isn’t the time nor the place,” replied Jacob, “when will it be the time and the place.”

“Someday. Somewhere.”

“Really?” he said excitedly. “Where and when will that be?”

“Sooner or later,” Trish nodded. “Here or there.”

“OK! It’s a date!”

Jacob, you can be sure, can't take a hint.
