Size Fate

After the blonde had gone (back to her husband) I find a shoe, floating in a rock pool. I slip my foot into the water, then into the shoe: it fits – size 8. I swap my foot for 8 golf balls: they fit – 8 golf balls fill a size 8 shoe. So can it be true: the number of golf balls that fill a shoe, corresponds exactly to the size of shoe? I have a hole in my trouser pocket so I put the golf balls in my hat and head off along the beach, in search of more shoes of different sizes - more lost soles, whose size can be measured with golf balls. Oh yes, the blonde, she was size 8 too - as thin as a golf tee, fifteen years younger than me.

To be continued…
