Not Today, Josephine

Play episode
A North Carolina listener says that when he was a boy and asked for something at a store that his father didn’t want to buy, his dad would reply Not today, Josephine. The origins of this phrase are unclear, although there is a story that it refers to Napoleon Bonaparte, who couldn’t keep up with his wife’s sexual voracity, and supposedly had to keep refusing her with Not tonight, Josephine. The story may well be apocryphal, however. This is part of a complete episode.
