Helen Wrobel, quoted by Ron Alexander in New York Times
Today I'm Meeting My Wife
Two friends were having lunch at a cafe in New York's Grand Central Terminal. They noticed a man sitting alone at an adjoining table. When the waitress approached him, they overheard her ask, "Are you waiting to be joined by a tall, thin woman with long, blond hair?"
He answered, "In the larger scheme of life, yes. But today I'm meeting my wife."
