Ole in Paris

Ole, a furniture dealer from Brainerd, MN, wanted to expand the line of
furniture in his store, so he went to Paris to see what he could find.
After arriving in Paris he visited with some manufacturers and selected
a line that he thought would sell well back home.

To celebrate the new acquisition he visited a small bistro to have a
glass of wine. As he sat enjoying his wine, he noticed that the small
place was quite crowded, and that the other chair at his table was the
only vacant seat in the house.

Before long, a very beautiful young Parisian girl came to his table and
asked him something in French which Ole couldn't understand, so he
motioned to the vacant chair and invited her to sit down. He tried to
speak to her in English, but she did not speak his language. After a
couple of minutes of trying to communicate with her, he took a napkin
and drew a picture of a wine glass and showed it to her. She nodded, so
he ordered a glass of wine for her.

After sitting together at the table for a while, he took another napkin
and drew a picture of a plate with food on it, and she nodded. They
left the bistro and found a quiet cafe that featured a small group
playing romantic music. They ordered dinner, after which he took
another napkin and drew a picture of a couple dancing. She nodded, and
they got up to dance.

They danced until the cafe closed and the band was packing up.

Back at their table, the young lady took a napkin and drew a picture of
a four-poster bed.

To this day, Ole has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture
business.
