It Fits Him Perfectly

As we walk through the sunny spring day, dodging the lunchtime throngs that crowd the mid-town sidewalk, I notice my co-worker's houndstooth blazer in a similar shade to one I received at Christmas, and I remark on it.

"I still need to get mine altered," I say, "because my arms are too long."

He is quite a bit shorter than me, and smiles at my words.

"I have the opposite problem," he says, tugging his cuffs, as if by doing so, he might make his arms longer.
