The Axe

A man couldn’t find his axe, and suspected that his neighbor’s son stole it. As the man inspected the boy—the way he moved, the look on his face, and the way he spoke—everything seemed to point to the boy’s guilt. “He stole my axe!” the man thought to himself.

However, not long afterwards, he came across his missing axe while digging in a dell.

The next day, he looked at his neighbor’s son again. This time, he couldn’t spot all those cues that pointed to the boy’s guilt the previous day.
