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.

Hilarious wise crack! Mental arithmetic isn’t important 😀 ROTF
Is it bad that I read this three times before realising that neither 17 nor 15 are correct?
