The Test

Interviewer said, “I shall either ask you ten easy questions or one really difficult question. Think well before you make up your mind!”

The candidate thought for a while and said, “My choice is one really difficult question.”

“Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice!” said the interviewer.

Here is your question: “What comes first, day or night?”

The boy was jolted into reality as his admission depended on the correctness of the answer to that one question. He thought for a while and said, “It’s day, sir!”

“How?” the interviewer asked.

“Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a second difficult question!”

Moral: Technical skill is the mastery of complexity, while creativity is the mastery of simplicity.

Bought a house in New York State

My husband and I bought a house in New York State from two elderly sisters. Winter was fast approaching and I was concerned about the house's lack of insulation. "If they could live here all those years, so can we!" my husband confidently declared.

One November night the temperature plunged to below zero, and we woke up to find interior walls covered with frost. My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm. After a rather brief conversation, he hung up.
