What’s wrong with the sock drawer?

The other night Beth was coming out of the bathroom with her towel wrapped tightly around her chest. This new found modesty was a little refreshing, so of course we had to say something about it. Beth’s reply was a little odd: “I don’t want anyone to see my nickels.”

“NICKELS? What are you doing with nickels under your towel?” I replied.

“What, doesn’t everyone have nickels?”, was Beth’s confused retort.

Any one reading this from out there in the cheap seats probably already knows what was going on. For whatever reason, I was a little slow on the uptake. And no, her comment had nothing to do with money. Regardless of how this reads, or how unlikely it may seem, you are just going to have to trust me that this was very funny when it happened. Anytime you can laugh at yourself things must be reasonably o.k.
