One day Sisman Tuccar was sitting at his table at the teahouse staring at the baklava on his plate. Somebody asked, “Sisman, what are you doing?”
Sisman replied, “I’m waiting for the baklava to jump into my mouth.”
“Why don’t you pick it up with your fork?” asked the man.
“That would be trying,” said Sisman, “and I’m trying not to try.”
“Why are you trying not to try?” asked the man.
“Because somebody told me that trying doesn’t help.”
