Mom and Pop were returning from a trip to town along a back road when suddenly Mom saw something that made her smile and sang out happily, “Horse trailer!” Then a question occurred to her about the working of her husband’s mind.
Mom: Do you notice horse trailers when you’re driving?
Pop: Sure. Of course. Why wouldn’t I?
Mom: I don’t know. I just wondered.
Pop: I’ve even thought of buying a horse trailer to carry paintings in. The paintings could stand up straight. It would work great. I’ve looked at a couple in the past year. One was a good price, but it was too rusty.
Mom [incredulous]: Did you ever think what that would do to me if you brought home a horse trailer? With no horse and no intention of getting a horse?
Pop [laughs]: What it would do to you? It isn’t about you!
Mom: A horse trailer? That is so about me!
