A man named John falls in love with a famous violinist who came to town. He goes to all of her shows and tries to see if she has a lover. At each show, she arrives with one man and leaves with another. To his surprise, he never saw her with the same man twice.
Finally, during her final night in town, John had a front row seat. He watched her enter with yet another new man. She played the most amazing performance yet, but stunningly, she never took her eyes off John, and not a glance at the man she came in with.
“This is my chance,” he thought, and approached her after the show. “Miss, I saw you watching me tonight. I felt as if you were playing just for me. Tell me, do you have a lover?”
The famous violinist smiled at him and said “I straddle various.”
