Job Cohen, the former mayor of Amsterdam and former leader of the Labour Party in the Netherlands, visited my mother.
About an hour before his arrival my mother got nervous. “Why did you invite him?” she asked. “I’m an old woman. It’s going to be embarrassing.” I comforted my mother by saying that Mr. Cohen would propose to her.
He didn’t propose to her, but this evening she called me and she said: “Mr. Cohen is such a lovely man. He is so special.”
