Lully is one of our favorite 16th-century composers, who wrote music for
the king of France.
While rehearsing the musicians, he got too serious beating time with his
staff, and drove it right through his foot. He died of infection.
A lady who was known as Churchill's main rival in parliament was giving a
speech. Churchill, with his usual enthusiasm for his rival, dozed off
while the lady was speaking. She stopped her speech and awoke Sir Winston
by yelling, "Mr. Churchill, must you sleep while I talk?" Churchill
sleepily replied, "No, ma'am. I do so purely by choice."
This is a true story. My sister and I spent two weeks in Paris. The locals
obviously hated Americans -- no matter where we went, we were subject to
rude behavior from waiters, store clerks, pedestrians, etc. After a while
it started to irritate us.
One day, in Paris, my sister went shopping. She entered a store and
started looking around. She was the only customer in the store. As she was
looking through the clothes on the rack, a clerk hurriedly approached her
and very abruptly asked if he could help her.
My sister was used to this bad treatment by now and she politely declined
his help. She continued to look at the clothes. Then she noticed that
every clerk in the store was staring at her.
Defiantly, she continued to look through the clothes. When she could take
this treatment no longer, she turned on her heels, with her head held
high, and left the shop.
As she left, she noticed that the sign on the store read...."DryCleaners."
