“Which one of you sidewinders
stole my horse?!” he yelled with
surprising forcefulness.


No one answered. “Alright, I’m
gonna have another beer, and if my
horse ain’t back outside by the time
I finish, I’m gonna do what I dun in
Texas! And I don’t like to have to do
what I dun in Texas!”


Some of the locals shifted restlessly.
The man, true to his word, had another
beer, walked outside, and his horse has
been returned to the post.

He saddled
up and started to ride out of town.
The bartender wandered out of the bar
and asked, “Say partner, before you go…
what happened in Texas?”
The cowboy turned back and said, “I had
to walk home.”
