Oh the Insanity

It's things like this that make me shake my head in confusion about the town where I live.

Earlier I was in "town" renting a movie and this girl I know who works next door to me says "You wanna come see my goat?"

I'm thinking 'I hope this isn't a euphemism.' but respond with "Sure"

So we leave the video store to go to her truck, she opens the door and standing on the seat is the cutest baby goat ever. I am immediately in love with this lovely little thing. I pick her up and walk back into the video store to show Hubby. Nobody even takes a second look to see the crazy girl who is holding a GOAT for christ sake. The thing is bleating like crazy and still nothing. Nobody even says to get that thing out of this store, it's not a barn you know. And really I was expecting it. I would've deserved it. It is a goat afterall.

Her name is Cricket.

Now I want a mini goat. HE says no. Spoilsport.

I wish I had a camera with me, because certain people don't truly believe that my town is that backwoods. Seriously, I am not making this shit up. But you can't make shit like this up. It's not possible.


  1. Oh man. I'm siding with Adam on this one. Did he like your hair??

  2. He loved it immediately.

    And I have gotten over the fact that I will never own a goat. Even if it really was very cute.

    Although someone needs to discuss with him his idea of having a cow.

  3. I have wanted a goat forever. His name will be Herman and he will be the cutest darn thing ever.
    Raymond said I can get one as soon as we settle into a stable working setting, ie. Once we both get jobs in the same town.
    They are cheap to buy. I want the fainting kind but you have to be careful because the coyotes have an easier time nabbing them because they faint when scared.
    If your going to get a cow, you might as well go all the way and have chickens, horses, sheep, the whole charlottes web type thing.
