Something was different this morning.
It wasn't the fact today is the Chief's last day and I have to attend his farewell ceremony.
It wasn't the fact there was no wind.
It wasn't the fact the Captain promoted some unlikely candidates for interim positions. They are all under 5-8 under 170 pounds and have the same hairdo...bald or metrosexual. He's creating the master race.
Nope. None of that.
It was the air. It had rained last night. The smell of fresh sagebrush did something outside.
Geese were pairing up on the river.
Two blue heron were on one of the islands.
Two egrets were in the swamp.
Meadowlarks sounded off in the meadow.
Doves and magpies hung in the branches of the forest next to the house.
The Mighty River was raging higher and had come up 8 inches.
It was beautiful.
And then...Bug saw them...all bazillion of them...
BUG: Mom. Look.
I looked outside the big front windows...
BOING! BOING! BOING! BOING! BOING! BOING! BOING! BOING!
BUG: Mommy, aren't they funny?
ME: Oh. Yes. [little fornicators]
BUG: [giggle] They're so cute.
ME: Aha. So cute. [you little perverts]
BUG: Why do they do that?
ME: [not going to give the real answer] They are fighting over which one gets to be the Easter Bunny.
BUG: Wow, mom. I wonder which one is going to win.
ME: If it were my choice..it would be the one that lays Cadbury Cream Eggs. [what...are they all that horny.. When are they going to stop? Egads]
BUG: Do any of these lay Cadbury Cream eggs, Mom?
ME: No, honey, we can't get that lucky. That bunny is far, far away...in a land called Candyland.
So...it went. On this day, my daughter got to watch porn in the front yard. Life is bliss.
