On mental weight loss

Just overheard this:

Old man, talking passionately to another old man about one of numerous past illnesses…

“I lost SEVENTEEN KILOS!!! SEVENTEEN!!!”

Here ensues a detailed description of every aspect.. He stops abruptly to correct himself..

“No, fifteen – from 84 down to 72.”

..before continuing with the story.

Good thing mental arithmetic isn’t important here.
