Horseshoe look / Selling the house

Humor“Horseshoe Look”

One day a cowboy walked into a blacksmith shop and picked up a horseshoe, not realizing that it had just come from the forge.

He immediately dropped it and jammed his hand into his pocket, trying to act as if nothing had happened.  

The blacksmith noticed and asked with a grin, “Kind of hot, wasn’t it?”

“Nope,” answered the cowboy through clenched teeth, “it just doesn’t take me long to look at a horseshoe.” 

“Don’t tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don’t tell them where they know the fish.”  ~ Mark Twain 

Selling the House

A few years ago, we were desperately trying to sell our house, which was situated on a busy thoroughfare. Our real estate agent decided to have an open house inspection nearly every day to promote the sale. We instructed the children not to talk to anyone about the house.

One evening, a man took our seven-year-old daughter aside and asked if our house had any secrets he should know. Her first reaction was to smile and ignore his question. But he became more persistent and finally, she confessed there was one secret, but she couldn’t tell him.

“Now we’re getting somewhere,” he said. “Tell me the secret. I promise I won’t tell anyone.”

She looked him straight in the eye and whispered, “We have monsters in our sewer!”
