When I was very small my dad held one hand out like a barrier. Then he snapped the fingers of his other hand on alternate sides of this barrier. ‘What’s this?’ he asked? His answer was ‘Mr. and Mrs. Yehudi playing tennis.’
Apparently Yehudi was an invisible man, and so was his wife. What is the origin of the invisible Mr. Yehudi? Why was he invisible? Because it’s easy to blame mishaps on an invisible man? Or because he’s never there when there’s a task to be done? Any connection to Yehudi Menuhin?
