One of the regular foursome was sick, so a new member named George filled in. He was very good and pleasant company so they asked him to join them again the following Sunday. “9.30 okay?”
George said, “Fine, but I may be about ten minutes late. Wait for me.”
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 at 9.30. George again said, “Okay, but I may be about ten minutes late. Wait for me.”
The next Sunday there was George, punctual to the dot. This time he played right-handed and beat them again. “Okay, for 9.30 next Sunday?” one of the foursome asked.
George said, “Sure if I�m ten minutes late�”
Another golfer jumped in. “Wait a minute� You always say you may be ten minutes late. But you�re always right on time and you beat us whether you play right or left handed.”
George said, “Well, that�s true � I�m superstitious. If I wake up and my wife is sleeping on her right side, 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 ten minutes late!”
