The couple had been married many years and it had got to
the stage where any romance that might have been, had died
long ago. On a shopping trip into town they stopped off at
the tailor’s to get the husband fitted for a new pair of
“What size zip would you like?” asked the assistant.
“Oh, the longest you’ve got,” he quickly replied.
After they’d left the shop the wife turned to him and
remarked bitterly, “You remind me of that good-for-nothing
brother of yours. Every day he opens the doors of his double
garage and wheels out a bicycle.”
