frightful manner. The streets were deserted and the local
baker was just about to close up shop when a little, old
man slipped through the door. He carried an umbrella,
blown inside out, and was bundled in two sweaters and a
thick coat. But even so he still looked wet, freezing, and

As he unwound his scarf he said to the baker, “May I have
two poppy seed bagels to go, please?”

The baker said in astonishment, “Two bagels? Nothing more?”

“That’s right,” answered the little man. “One for me and
one for Sherry.”

“And who is Sherry, your wife?” asked the baker.

“What did you think,” snapped the little man, “that my mother
would send me out on a night like this?”😳
