LIPGLOSS & INSECTS
Wrangler man (Cowboy) likes to take jeep rides. I swear he could ride for days looking at the country, telling me who just bought what land, what this farm animal is or that piece of equipment does. Sometimes I try to impress him and say, “Wow! Look at all of those sheep!” (As if I’m really getting the hang of this country life.) He’ll laugh and say, “Those are not sheep! They are goats!” I think to myself, “They all look the same; a sheep is a goat, a goat is a lamb, etc!”
Today he came in from outside and said, “Let’s take a jeep ride to Lampasas and grab a burger!” I said excitedly, “Yes! Im starving! Let me grab my lip gloss.” Now don’t judge, you just never know who you might run into driving from Pidcoke to Lampasas! A girl needs her lipgloss! Cowboy said, “Uh, ok.” “Ill be right there,” I replied.
As we’re driving down the bumpy country roads and talking about kids, in-laws and business, I realize two things: 1. Land is beautiful, it’s beautiful raw and untouched. And, it’s beautiful worked and tilled, ready for crops. Oh, and one more thing I realized, bugs DO NOT care what flavor your lip gloss is, they’ll stick to anything!
