How to get rid of goats

My parents are in town for a few days and are staying with us. My 78 year old mother and I were discussing herbs.

My mom told me that last year she planted a bunch of herbs and only the sage grew.  Not being a big fan of sage I told her I don't like sage. I said, "it is only good for burning and to get ghosts out of your house. (There are people that believe burning sage can bless or cleanse a house.)  My 18 year old daughter has told me she thinks there is a ghost in the house where she lives.  I said that  maybe Jessica should  burn sage.  My mother said, "Why?  Does her house smell?"  I looked at her confused.  "Does she have a goat in her house?"  My mother asked.

So apparently my mom thinks that if you happen to have an unwanted goat in your house, causing unpleasant odors, you can get rid of it by burning sage.

I will certainly take note of that. She could have a book of quotes! Thanks for sharing.
