The Necklace

“I’ve had a rather frenetic day and I feel like my head is in a bit of a fog,” Felix said to the man behind the counter. “Maybe you can help me out. I’m looking for a gift for my wife, one that will be a fitting tribute to what she means to me.

“I’d be glad to help,” the man said. “Take a gander at this,” he said, holding up a diamond necklace.

“That’s exquisite,” Felix said. “How much would that set me back?”

The man behind the counter leaned over toward Felix and whispered to him.

Felix let out a whistle. “I love my wife,” he said, “but not that much.”
