Ted and Alex were approaching the first tee as they started their weekly game of golf.
Alex goes into his golf bag to get a ball and says to his friend, “Hey, why don’t you try this ball.”
He draws a green golf ball out of his bag and says “You can’t lose it.”
Ted replies, “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 shows him all the possibilities until he is convinced.
Ted says, “Wow! That’s incredible Alex! Where on earth did you get that ball!”
Alex replies, “I found it.”
