We Know What She Was Thinking
I knew I forgot to tell you something. At PBR, I pointed out to Lyn when the cowboys were getting ready and were at the chutes. She gave me a slide glance and said "I want one." "You want one? What, a cowboy?"
"Yes" was whispered.
I tried not to laugh and asked why, what would you do?
"Take him home."
I then got The Look.
I turned toward our neighbor who went with us and was laughing, trying to tell her. We agree that if Lyn gets one, we do too. I promised I wouldn't hurt one.
She kept saying she "could have one." I agreed then pointed out something else. Didn't work.
