هنا هو قصة قصيرة حول كيفية العثور على رعاة البقر سر السعادة الزوجية مباشرة بعد زواجه. الحفل كان جميلا والعروس جميلة. بعد حفل الزفاف, العروس والعريس حصل على على عربة يقودها حصان لجعل المنزل طريقهم, مع العروس سعيدة ومتحمس, الثرثرة على نحو لا شيء, والعريس يقيمون قوي وصامت مع لا كلمة بعد “أفعل.”
Halfway through their ride, the horse stumbled. The cowboy broke his silence and said, laconically, “One.” His wife was nonplussed, but let it pass. Another couple of miles on, the horse stumbled again, and the groom went, “Two.” The wife ignored it and went on with her one-sided conversation. Just as they reached home, the old horse stumbled once more. The cowboy said, “Three,” pulled out his gun and shot the poor beast dead.
The bride was, understandably, shocked and dismayed. قالت, “رافعة, honey, you should control your temper. It’s inhuman to shoot a poor old horse for stumbling a couple of times.” The cowboy remained silent. The wife decided to take it up a notch. “Are you listening to me? Anybody can shoot a defenseless animal. Don’t think you are impressing anybody! Promise me, you will never do this again.” The cowboy remained silent. The wife, exasperated now, asked, “جيد, don’t you have anything to say for yourself?”
The cowboy finally did have something to say. قال, “One.”
It is said that they never had another argument in their long and happy married life.
