Today, I Met Napoleon

Oh, Monsieur!

I was paying a shiva call with two friends today. We got into the elevator of a very fancy 5th Avenue building. There was an elevator operator to bring us up to the apartment.

My friend Lorraine looked at his name tag.

“Your name is Napoleon?” she asked.

He nodded.

“Dynamite,” Lorraine said, poker-faced.

There was silence.

Then she added, “You look taller in person.”
