To Friends in Faraway Places

Albert Frank Headshot by Albert Frank

Friend toasting A man goes every day at 8:00 PM to a bar in Paris, where he orders two whiskies. After some months, the bartender asks the man, "Sir, why do you order two whiskies?"

The man answers, "I have a friend in another country, who orders each day the same as I — so we feel nearer one to the other."

A few months later the man, who has continued to come every day, suddenly orders only one whisky during each of his visits. After a few days the bartender asks him, "Sir, why do you now order only one whisky?"

The man answers: "It is because I have stopped drinking."
