A furniture dealer from Kentucky 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 Kentucky. 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 awhile, 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.
