One Saturday, three golfers, Andy, Tim, and Trevor, were looking for a fourth person to play a round of golf with them.

Andy mentioned that his friend George was a pretty good golfer, so they decided to invite him to play a round with them the following Saturday.

“Sure, I’d love to play”, George said when asked, “but I may be about ten minutes late, so please can you wait for me”.

Saturday rolled around and Andy, Tim and Trevor arrived promptly at 9am, finding that George was already waiting for them.

He played right-handed and beat them all soundly.

Quite pleased with their new fourth man, they asked him if he would like to play with them again the following Saturday.

“Yeah, sounds great”, George said, “but, I may be about ten minutes late, so please can you wait for me”.

The following Saturday, all four golfers again showed up on time, but this time George played left-handed and again he beat them all soundly.

As they were getting ready to leave, George said, “See you next Saturday, but, I may be about ten minutes late, so wait for me”.

Every week from then on, George was right on time and played a great round of golf with whichever hand he decided to use.

Every week, he departed with the same message.

After a couple of months, Trevor was pretty tired of this routine, so he said, “Wait a minute, George. Every week you say you may be about ten minutes late, but you are always right on time. Then you beat us either left-handed or right-handed. What’s the story?”

“Well”, George replied. “I’m kind of superstitious. When I get up in the morning, I look at my wife. If she is sleeping on her left side, I play left-handed, and if she is on her right side, I play right-handed”.

“So what do you do if she’s sleeping on her back?”, Andy asked.

“Then I’m about ten minutes late!” George replied.
