"I know many of you have been in Vienna, but how many of you were there in 1869?"

"And those of you who were there in 1869, were surely there in 1852", the conductor said.

Because suddenly, I was a a new year's concert that tributed Strauss (the Strausses).
A young girl had walked up to me and offered me a concert ticket outside the concert hall. Just like that.
"We thought it would be a pity if this ticket was not used and the concert starts at eight o'clock."
"What's the time now?"
"A quarter to."
"In that case, what a wonderful opportunity."
