Ole The Furniture Dealer

Ole, a furniture dealer from up at Fergus Falls, MN, decided to expand the
line of furniture in his store, so he decided to go 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 decided to visit a small bistro and 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,
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 so, 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.
