The Misogynist

HARRY IS a wit. Someone has defined a wit as a person who can tell a funny story without cracking a smile. That’s Harry.
“You know,” Steve said at the office one day, “I’ll bet Harry will walk right up to the flaming gates of Hell, keeping the Devil in stitches all the time, and never change expression.”
That’s the kind of fellow Harry is. A great guy to have around the office. Makes you laugh just to see him, thinking about the last story he told. Smart, too. Keeps at a thing, digging away, piling up facts and stuff until you finally see something straight for the first time. Everybody says he’s going places.
But the kind of story Harry likes—he likes them long. They start kind of slow, you know, and sort of build up with a tickle here and a tickle there until each new touch makes you helpless, you’re so weak with laughter. The kind of story you take home to your wife and you get part way through, laughing like a fool, and you notice she’s just sitting there, sort of patient and martyred, thinking maybe about tomorrow’s dinner or the dress sale downtown, and you stop laughing and sigh and say, “It must be the way he tells it” or “Nobody can tell stories like Harry.”
But then women don’t think Harry’s funny.
