empty houses. The ones they loathed always seemed to be available,
but others had already snapped up the ones that struck their fancy.

love with it.
"Please," they begged, "tell us that this one we can have."

"It's last .... but not leased!
When an Indian shaman succeeded in driving an evil spirit out of a
beautiful maiden of the tribe, she exclaimed, "Thank you very much!" and
proceeded to hug the medicine man.
The Shama's wife was angered by the maiden's touching gesture of gratitude,

In South America, curare is not expensive but deer meat
is. Since the natives can no longer rely on their own

it from professional hunters', often trading curare for
venison. This has given rise locally to the expression,
"An ounce of pro venison is worth a pound of curare."
