    A furniture dealer from Knoxville, Tennessee decided that he wanted to
    expand the line of furniture in his store, so he decided to go to
    Paris, France to see what he could find.
    After arriving in Paris (this being his first trip ever to the French capitol),
    he met with some manufacturers and finally selected
    a line that he thought would sell well back home in Tennessee.
    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 one 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 he did not understand), and
    motioned toward the chair.
    He 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, and 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, he has no idea how she figured out he was in the
    furniture business.
