riddle me this

Anonymous: A cowboy arrives in a town on Friday, stays for 3 days, and leaves the town on Friday. How is that possible?

I paused for a while to think.

Me: Don’t you think it’s funny that cowboys are called cowboys when they don’t ride cows?

Anonymous: You’re not getting the point of this conversation.


Hehe but seriously, what do you guys think is the answer?

How can a cowboy arrive in a town on a Friday, stay for 3 days and leave on a Friday as well?

(This conundrum was taken from a children’s show, hence why I had to protect the identity of this person, so as to preserve whatever dignity he/she has left)
