Mom’s New Apartment
David Epstein’s mother Selma moved into a new apartment and she invited him over. "I’d love to see Talia and the grand kids."
"Great. How do I get to your new place?" David asked.
"Here's the address. And there's plenty of parking behind the apartment. Park and come around to the front door, kick it open with your foot, go to the elevator and press the button with your left elbow, then enter! When you reach the sixth floor, go down the hall until you see my name on the door. Then press the doorbell with your right elbow and I'll let you in." "Good. But tell me...what is all this business of kicking the front door open, then pressing elevator buttons with my right, then my left elbow?"
Mrs. Epstein answered, "Surely, you're not coming empty-handed."
