Flour on the Clothesline

A neighbor came to the Hodja’s door and asked to borrow a clothesline.

“Let me ask my wife,” replied the Hodja, disappearing inside.

He returned a short time later with the answer, “I am sorry, dear friend, but we cannot lend you our clothesline, for we have sprinkled flour on it.”

“When would a person ever sprinkle flour on a clothesline?” asked the neighbor in disbelief.

“When someone else wanted to borrow it,” was the Hodja’s answer.
