Which of the following sentences from the text best supports the “love is blind” theme ? (1 point) “But, what a queer thing fate is: the last thing I should have expected was that, in that corner, in that very kitchen, I mean, somebody should come and catch me by surprise and pick me like a flower that has been hidden in the grass.” “Then, as we came out, she explained to me that she had been noticing me for some time, from the very day, it might even be said, that she had been taken on at the hotel.” “Filled with admiration, I said to Ida: ’Look at that! How I should like to be a trapezist! I should like to launch myself into the air and then catch hold of the trapeze with my legs!’" “At this, the woman started to laugh, and Ida, hissing like a viper, broke in: ‘There's nothing to laugh at...instead of laughing, you'd better stop rubbing yourself up against my husband...I suppose you think I didn't see you...You've been rubbing your arm up against him the whole time.’"(my answer)
