Ted and Alex were approaching the first tee as they started their weekly game of golf.
Alex reached into his golf bag to get a ball and said to his friend, “Hey, why don’t you try this ball.”
He pulled a green golf ball out of his bag and said “You have to try this ball, you can’t lose it.”
Ted replied, “What do you mean you can’t lose it? It’s a green ball, it’s going to be impossible to find if you whack it into the rough!”
Alex replies, “I’m serious, you can’t lose it. If you hit it into the woods, it makes a beeping sound. If you hit it into the water it produces bubbles and if you hit it on the fairway, smoke comes up in order for you to find it.”
Obviously, Ted doesn’t believe him, but Alex showed him all the possibilities until he was convinced.
Ted said, “Wow! That’s incredible Alex! Where on earth did you get that ball!”
Alex replied, “I found it.”
