Project #46: In 1962 the Beatles released their first single, “Love Me Do”

Now at 3,721 words.

This should be recognizable to some:

In the hallway stood a tall boy dressed primly in an old-fashioned waistcoat and jacket, dark hair slicked back, his trousers creased sharply as if by the trouser presses of doom.

Notable notes:

Out of 3,721 words, over 900 come from the dialogue of one character in four.

ETA: A graph that shows I can count and stuff!
ETa: And count in the right direction!
