Muse #259 - what else can I say?
Here is a story I thoroughly enjoyed and wanted to share:
Once upon a time, there were two carpenters - an expert and his apprentice. The apprentice was using a box of nails to nail down a series of boards to build a wall. While doing so, he was throwing away part of the nails in the trash can.
The expert carpenter observing this asked, “Why are you throwing away those nails?”
The apprentice replied, “These nails were facing the wrong way, so I could not use them!”
Answered the expert, “Oh my god. You’re such an idiot. Can’t you see? These are for the other side of the house. They are facing in the opposite direction”
