Living with family means we always know each other's ins and outs, but especially we pretty much know how each other thinks. The sister in the following story was counting on her sisterly knowledge. 

Two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherit the family's cattle ranch.

The telegraph operator explains that he'll be glad to help her, then adds,

Well, after paying for the bull, the brunette only has $1 left. She realizes that she'll only be able to send her sister one word.

After thinking for a few minutes, she nods and says,

The telegraph operator shakes his head.
