Two friends meet and one asks the other: “How are you?” The other says: “My life is all stripes — black stripes followed by white ones.”
“So which one is it now?” “Now I’m in the black one.”
Another six months pass, they meet again: “How’s life? I know it’s all stripes, but which one is it now?” “It’s black now.”
“But it was black last time!” “Looks like it was white last time.”
