Short and To the Point

Tales from the Cutting Counter:   A woman brings me a bolt of black fabric.  She says she needs just a little bit, she's repairing something or other.  I show her half a yard--too much.  I show her a quarter yard--too little.  I show her a third--she stops, thinks.   "Which will work best for you, the quarter yard or the third yard?" I ask.  "Whichever is smaller," she answers.
