Sis entered the shop and asked the nice clerk if she could look at some tablecloths. The salesman brought out a pile of tablecloths and showed them to Sis. None of them suited her. The salesman brought another stack of tablecloths, she didn’t like them either. She asked the clerk, “Haven’t you got something new?” He then brought out another pile of tablecloths out and said to her, “These are the newest pattern, you will notice the edge runs right around the border and the center is in the middle.” Sis said, “OH BOY! Yes, I’ll take a dozen of those.”
