Joe was shocked and a bit depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for but seemed to have no real choice other than go under the knife. When he left the hospital a few days later, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. As he walked down the street, he began to realize that he could make a new beginning and start to live a new life. He saw a men’s clothing store and thought, ‘That’s what I need… A new suit…’
He entered the shop and told the salesman, “I’d like to try on a new suit please”
The elderly tailor eyed him briefly and said, “Let’s see now… Size 44
Long should do it” Joe laughed, “Wow, that’s right; how did you know?”
“Oh, I’ve been in the business 40 years sir!” the tailor said.
Joe tried on the suit and it fit perfectly. As he admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, “How about a new shirt to go with that lovely suit?”
Joe thought for a moment and then said, “Sure, why not.”
The salesman eyed Joe for a moment and said, “Let’s see, 34 sleeve and 16 1/2 neck.”
Joe was surprised again, “You’re absolutely right, how did you guess that?”
“just been in the business for so long.”
Joe tried on the shirt and it fitted like a glove! He walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, “How about some new underwear?” Joe thought for a moment and said, “Sure, I might as well go the whole hog”.
The salesman said, “Let’s see… Size 36.”
Joe laughed, “Ah ha! I got you! I’ve worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old.”
The salesman shook his head, “No way! You can’t wear a size 34 sir. A 34 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache!”
