In a gesture of goodwill, I lent him a pair of pants. However, those pants were actually my work pants, typically worn while tending to the yard.

Harrison, being the curmudgeon he is, demanded, ‘Anthony, just give me the damned pants.’ So, I obliged. That’s the whole story—he simply needed a pair of pants.”
