The boxer

I went into a restaurant for a salad and onion rings. An elderly couple happened to be beside me. As I was about to leave, the lady said to me, "Are you a boxer? You look like a boxer."

I said, "No, I am not a boxer, but I do lift weights."

The lady said, "I thought you were very strong."

Her husband didn't say anything, but he was very amused that his wife was such a talker.
