    A man named George got a new job. Three of his fellow
    employees always met for a round of golf every Saturday.
    They asked George to meet them at 10:00 the next Saturday morning.
    George replied that he would love to meet them, but he
    might be six minutes late.
    On Saturday morning George was there at exactly 10:00am.
    He golfed right-handed and won the round.
    The following Saturday rolled around and
    George said again that he would be there but he might be six minutes late.
    He showed up right on time,
    shot left-handed and again won the round.
    This continued for the next few weeks with George
    always saying that he might be six minutes late,
    and then always winning the round whether he shot
    left-handed or right-handed.
    The other employees were getting tired of this so they
    decided to ask him what the deal was.
    They said, ''George, every Saturday you say you may be
    six minutes late. You never are. Then you
    show up and golf either right-handed or left-handed,
    and you always win. What's up with that?
    George replied, ''Well, I happen to be a very
    superstitious guy. Every Saturday when I wake up,
    I look over at my wife. If she's sleeping on her left
    side, I golf left-handed. If she's sleeping on her
    right side, I play golf right-handed.''
    ''Well,'' one of the employees questioned, ''what
    happens if she is lying on her back?''
    George replied, ''Then I'm six minutes late.'
