Apparently one of my great-granddad’s grandsons would visit him when the grandson was a small child. The grandson would be in the barn with great-granddad while the cows were being milked and would ask for either a “one-cow story” or a “two-cow story.”
The type of story depended upon how many cows had to be milked before the story was over–one or two.
Don’t forget to record your own stories–whether they are one or two-cow stories.
Your stories don’t even need to involve cows at all.
