Book of the Day.
a lady buys a t-shirt

There was a man we hadn't seen for a while.

He had put on weight. Bulked out.

He came to the counter with a book and asked me how I was.

I told him I was fine.

He complained of tiredness.

Do you mind, he asked, if I pay you with change.

Not a bit, I told him.

He emptied out the pockets of his jacket onto the counter, pilling up a mountain of silver, collecting the coins into neat one pound piles until he had nineteen pounds.

Enough for a penny change.

And an instant diet achieved.
