A medium

“Have I ever told you about Menotti’s assistant?
His name was Jean-Paul.

But since he was Menotti’s assistant
and I was Flum’s assistant,
we would often bitch about our jobs together-
although his was a lot more legitimate than mine.

He used to say that there were two phrases he hated to hear from Menotti.
The first was, ‘I’m mad at you,’ which wasn’t that I bad,
but the second was much worse. ‘I will kill you.’
He said he only heard that once.

Naturally I asked him when that had happened and
he replied dejectedly, ‘I forgot to pick Sam up at the airport.”
