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.

  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.
