Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Thursday, July 6


The new six-foot six-inch American consul in Porto Alegre, Brazil was delighted with the friendliness of the Brazilians, always finding himself surrounded by an animated group during the endless obligatory receptions and cocktail parties.

He was somewhat less delighted to finally discover the key to his popularity. Apparently, at the beginning of these large gatherings, spouses would say to one another, "When it is time to go, I will meet you next to the American consul."
