Elderly Furniture Dealer Meets a Young Woman in a Cafe

Where would we be without furniture? It’s won’t of those things you just never think about until you need a chair! But, it’s hard to imagine life without these human-made items. Heck, even survivalists find ways to make furniture to make themselves more comfortable. And like many things, furniture is something that every culture figured out how to make independently. You could say it’s in our DNA to make furniture. Tables, chairs, beds, you name it these items are vital to our society. I can tell you that after years of not having an easy chair, I now can’t imagine life without one! The old furniture dealer in this fictional joke understood the value of a good piece of furniture, maybe a little too well.

An elderly man Murphy, a furniture dealer from Dublin, 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 Murphy could not 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 on it.

To this day, the old Murphy has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture business…
