At first, Jim thought that Stella must wear blue-tinted contact lenses. He asked her if his surmise were true, but she frowned at him and said, "No, I don't wear contact lenses at all, tinted or otherwise." In that case, Jim thought, he must be going color blind. Concerned, he visited his opthamologist, Dr. Nancy Brewer, but, after examining Jim, she reassured her patient that his vision was absolutely normal. "But, doc," Jim insisted, "something must be wrong with my eyes!" "Why do you think so?" the opthmaologist asked. "Simple, all the guys talk about Stella's big brown eyes, but I see them as blue." Dr. Brewer laughed. "The expression 'big brown eyes,'" she explained to her patient, "doesn't have anything to do with Stella's eyes, or anyone else's, for that matter: 'big brown eyes' is a eumphemism for a woman's nipples!"
