Sean Murphy, a furniture dealer from Dublin, decided to expand the line of antique furniture in his store, so he went to Paris to see what he could find.
After arriving in Paris he visited some manufacturers and selected a line he thought would sell well back home.
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 the small place was quite crowded, and the 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 and asked him something in French, which Murphy could not understand, so he motioned to the vacant chair and invited her to sit down.
He tried to speak to her in English, but she did not speak his language.
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, so he ordered a glass of wine for her.
After sitting together at the table for a while 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 Murphy has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture business.
