He ventured where even birds do not fly. In those parts, he was told that the "girls" over 20 had fallen prey to cruel judgments in olden days. Rumour has it that those who were not "taken" by the time they were 20 were already considered old maids indeed, wilted flowers, overripe fruit. What times they were, indeed!

In those parts, they told him how very much the world had changed by now: these days, it was only the bachelorettes over the age of 25 who were said to be spinsters.

The young man thought for a moment, made the rounds of the independent women over 25, and took a good long look, to see whether they were indeed old maids.

He had a good look at them - and those who were truly over 25, who had truly not yet married, were truly not yet mothers - he gathered them all together into a big, beautiful bouquet.

And then he set his mind at ease. They were not old. They were free.
