las SnstlfS Cimts Tltur, June 6, 1974-Foit IV 3 ART BUCHWALD love is... Henry Kissinger, the Breadwinner get rolls instead of bread we won't have the problem of choosing sizes. The supermarket has indicated it would, consider selling us rolls at a special price providing we buy a jar of peanut butter that they're pushing as part of . , . the reason for slaying together. WASHINGTON The one question I keep getting asked when I'm on the road; is "What kind of husband-will Henry Kissinger make?" It's a hard one to answer, but on the basis of Henry's recent behavior, Mrs. Kissinger is going to discover that it isn't easy to be married to the super-negotiator of the world. This is the kind of situation that could come up. "Henry. 1 forgot to buy bread for the smoked salmon for our dinner party tonight. Would you go down to the supermarket and get a couple of loaves?" Henry replies, "Of course, my dear." y He returns in a half-hour. "What kind of bread did you want, rye or white?" ''It really doesn't matter, Henry. Eitherone will do." "It's not going to be that easy. The supermarket has more white than it does rye and therefore they have put the white bread up in the front and the rye bread in the back. They're demanding guarantees that I buy two loaves of white for every loaf of rye. I've taken the position we should have the right to buy the rye bread without having to purchase the white bread." "For heaven's sake. Henry, the guests are coming in 45 minutes. Will you go back and get the bread?" Henry comes back after 15 minutes. "The supermarket has agreed to sell me the rye without having to buy the white, but they raised the problem of the size of the loaf. If we get the large loaf, we get 3 cents off, but that means we'd only need a loaf and a half. But if we get the small loaf, we'd need two and the price would be prohibitive. What do you suggest we do?" "Henry, I need bread for the dinner. Would you please go back and bring some home?" Henry went back to the store and returned again. "I think I've worked out a compromise, Nancy. If we a Fourth of July sale. I told them I would bring the offer back to you and lay it on the table." "Henry, I don't care if it's peanut butter or jelly or cream cheese as long as you get the bread." "They didn't raise' the question of jelly or cream cheese, but Tl tell them you'd rather have that than peanut butter." By this time several reporters who- are standing outside the Kissinger home surround the secretary of state. "Mr. Kissinger," one of the reporters asks, "we understand you're trying to buy bread for your dinner tonight Do you think you'll be able to do it?" "There are still some last-minute details to be worked out," Henry says, "but I'm optimistic." But when Henry returns from'the supermarket he is glum and tells the reporters. "I would be less than candid if I told you that I brought back bread. "The supermarket has raised some last-minute conditions on slicing that I'm not sure can be met But after reporting to my wife I am going back and make one more effort to find a compromise which both sides can live with." By this time the guests are arriving and Nancy is crying. Everyone asks where Henry is and Nancy doesn't have the nerve to tell them he's still out trying to buy bread for dinner. Just as they sit down to dinner Henry rushes in with three boxes under his arm. His face is flushed and he waves them at Nancy. "Bread?" Nancy asks. '"Ry-Krisp," Henry replies. "But at least it's a start." ""By gum," says a' reporter peeking through the window, "Henry's done it again."
