“Which is the box where Lincoln was shot?”

I think we could all use a little humor in our daily lives. I include this cute story taken from thr ‘Metropolitan Diary’ section of The New York Times dated April 16, 2011 for consideration in that aim:

“Dear Diary:

I am a volunteer with the Metropolitan Opera Guild. In January, I was with a Manhattan middle school group attending a dress rehearsal of ‘Tosca.’ We were sitting in the Dress Circle.

During the intermission, I was explaining the history of the opera house. Gesturing toward the side boxes, one of the students asked, “Which is the box where Lincoln was shot?’
