At the theater

I was at the theater this evening with a friend. We had very good seats, near the front. Although the play is very popular, surprisingly the two seats next to us were empty.

A person in the row behind us joked “Maybe those are for Elijah.”

I told him that was impossible. “Why?” he asked.

“Well,” I explained, “they’re not making any money from those seats, right?”

“True,” he allowed.

“Which means,” I said, “clearly there is no prophet in them.”
