I just renewed my domain name for 2 more years so I have to come up with something interesting to say.
There are times when I swear I’m either not speaking English or not speaking out loud when I’m talking to clients. Those are the only possible explanations for some conversations I have. Here’s one from yesterday that I had with an apparently normal lady. I swear to God this is word for word.
Me: I’m going to give him his distemper and parvo combination and his kennel cough vaccines. His rabies is still good for 2 more years.
Her: Ok. What are you going to give him?
Me: I’m going to give him his distemper and parvo combination and his kennel cough vaccines.
Brief pause while I give the first vaccine
Her: So, what are you giving him?
Sometimes I sit back and wonder why I don’t run out of the room screaming.
I came home last night and found the newest issue of the sidesaddle magazine. I was flipping through and to my great surprise found this:
It is a scan of a bad black and white copy of a dark picture but it is me riding Prize at our sidesaddle clinic. You can’t really tell that from the picture but if you look really close you can almost make out both of my legs on Prize’s left side. I recognized Prize’s blaze and the jacket that I was wearing because it was cold in December. I’ve scheduled my next sidesaddle lesson for next Friday so maybe I can get better pictures.
