Algernon Swift tries an experiment with his natural inclinations.  He wears a shoe with a doubly thick sole on his left foot and now finds he inclines to everything to the right of him, and nothing to the left of him. 
All goes well, until he falls in with Mavis, that delectable object of his affections, who insists on walking down the street on his left side.   What to do?  The resourceful Swift solves the problem by walking backwards  slightly to her right and a few steps ahead of her, thus making his inclination towards her clearer than ever.
