|The 3 Things

I usually resist memes, but this one got me. It's been narrowing the list that's been slowing me down. Oh, so many things...|
1. Raised chickens in my bedroom. Oh, sure the little peeping when they go to sleep is the best noise to fall asleep to, EVER. But the scattering of sh*t and feathers all over the bedroom, especially when they start to FLY...
2. Poured a quart of Johnny Walker Black down a goat's throat. (Alcohol stops the fermenting that goes on in their stomach when they overeat grain and get colic. Which can kill them. Whether it's worth Johnny Walker, or not...) The pouring was rough. The burp afterwards was eyebrow searing. But she lived. The goat. I did too.
3. Been trapped between hay bales in a hot barn for an hour. Yup, August, up in the hay loft. You stack them so there's some airspace in between so you don't get spontaneous combustion. At least we did. I went up there to make some repairs on the electric fence box, was climbing the stacks and lost my balance, fell backwards ass first and into one of the spaces. So deep that my arms and legs were pointed damn near straight up. Let me tell you, those puppies do NOT budge. Especially if you're recently recovered from a hernia operation. Thankfully, someone came looking for me and heard my pitiful "oh, for fuck's sake" as I tried for the umpteenth time to get the hell out.
