A cocky Department of Agriculture representative stopped at a farm and talked with the old farmer. “I need to inspect your farm.”
The old farmer said, “You better not go in that field.”
The Agriculture representative said in a wise tone, “I have the authority of the U.S. Government with me. See this card, I am allowed to go wherever I wish on agricultural land.”
So the old farmer went about his farm chores. Later, the farmer heard loud screams and saw the Department of Agriculture rep running for the fence. Close behind was the farmer’s prize bull. The bull was madder than a nest full of hornets, and the bull was gaining at every step.
The Old farmer called out, “Show him your card!”
Barbara Jean is toast! She called me no less than 37 times yesterday after lunch wanting to come spend the afternoon with me at work. No. Been there. Done that. Lived to regret it…ALOT. She could make the Pope nuts!
So, after a well placed little white lie (I told her the Chief was in the office so she needed to stop calling) the calls FINALLY stopped. I should have known enough to be scared…very scared. This is what greeted me when I got home from work yesterday afternoon:
Click the photo for a closer view. Dear Lord. She got me good. Now, you must first realize that I truly dislike the color pink. Barbara Jean knows this. Look what she did!! You can’t see it but there’s even pink silly string all over the porch! The items hanging from the top of the porch and the railings are pink and purple party boxes that say “Fashion Party”. Pink streamers EVERYWHERE. My, my, my.
Not only did she gift wrap the storm door in a brilliant flourescent pink foil paper but she also wrote messages on the wrapping. Among them:
“Bet you wish you had let me play at the office now!” and “Revenge is sweet”.
I laughed extra hard when I pulled the gift wrapping off the storm door only to find that she had wrapped the main front door as well! Gracious! Oh yes, revenge is sweet and the child will pay. This I promise. She got me good.
My first laugh of this fog laden day happened mere moments after I left my house this morning. I was crawling through the school zone, noticing the normally there police car with a normally pulled over car. Nothing new there. As I passed the car however, I had no chioce but to let go of a big ol’ belly laugh. The driver looked to be about 17 and he was totally shell shocked about getting a ticket…Why?…Maybe because his license plate read…Are you ready for this?…Sure?…Here goes…
No lie! I swear this is a true story. I’m thinking the kid probably decided to skip school today and head over to the DMV for a new tag.
