Tall Tales

While I was queuing up at the supermarket checkout, I noticed this guy ahead of me.

"You're tall!" I said to him. "How tall are you?"

"6 ft 6," he said.


"I've seen taller," he said.

Given that my year of birth is 1966, I thought it was interesting that he was 6'6."

I also noted that his bill came to £10.76. When you deduct 10 from 76, you get 66.

Later I went into town. As I was walking back about three hours later, I noticed this tall guy walking towards me. Although I didn't ask him how tall he was, I had a feeling he was also 6 ft 6 inches.

The magic of like attracting like never ends.
