Fortune Cookie:
One of the regular foursome was sick, so a new member named George filled in. He was good and pleasant company so they asked him to join them again the following Sunday. "9:30 okay?" "Fine," George said, "but I may be a few minutes late." The following Sunday George showed up right on time. Not only that, he played left-handed and beat them. They agreed to meet the following Sunday morning. George was eager to come, but again, mentioned that he might be a few minutes late. The next Sunday there was George, punctual to the dot. This time he played right-handed and beat them again. "You on for next Sunday, George?" one of the foursome asked. "Sure," George replied, "but I might be a few..." Another golfer jumped in. "Wait a minute... You always say you might be late, but you're always right on time, and you always win, left-handed *or* right-handed." "Well," George replied, rather sheepishly, "that's true, but see, I'm superstitious. If my wife is sleeping on her right, when I wake up, I play right handed. If she's sleeping on her left side, I play left handed." "What if she's lying on her back?" George said, "That's when I'm late."
