Fall is one of my favorite times of year. Why? It’s the season that most of us Texans are looking forward to in hopes of a cool relief from our triple digit summers. Sweet Jesus it gets hot in Texas! One would think that having lived here as long as I have, that I would have adjusted to the sauna-infused weather by now. Let me just tell y’all…umm no. There is NO adjusting to the Texas heat. It’s either hot or hotter. We consider it a cold front when the temperature drops from 103 to 95…what on earth?!
I am about five seconds away from stripping down to my cheetah print birthday suit (haha) to run thru the sprinklers butt-naked. And then I remembered that we already have a naked neighbor in our part of the woods, but that’s another story.
I do not understand how Cowboy wears a long-sleeved shirt and his wranglers in the dead of summer. Don’t get me wrong, this pretend cowgirl loves his choice of jeans, but long sleeves? I would be a puddle of sweat mixed with a spritz of Chanel.
Speaking of sweat…I had a friend tell me once that if your partner sweats and you can not smell them, then they are your true soulmate.
Okay…let’s think about this…
If I can’t smell Cowboy when he sweats then that means he’s my soulmate?
Okay, I’ll play-
Cowboy comes in from a day of working outside…
ME: Come here for a minute, I need to smell you.
COWBOY: You need to what?
ME: Smell you. I need to see if you are my soulmate. I was told that if I take a whiff of you when you’re sweaty and I don’t want to plug my nose then apparently you really are my soulmate.
COWBOY: (Chuckling) Where did you come up with that from?
ME: My friend.
I walk to where he is and I start sniffin. Sniff, Sniff.
COWBOY: Well, did I pass the test?
ME: Wow! I seriously can’t smell your sweat. Now smell me.
COWBOY: (He walks over and sniffs) Have you been working outside too today?
ME: Umm, yes, why?
COWBOY: Because you smell like sweat mixed with your perfume that smells like Vicks.
’til next Sunday y’all- xo, Tammy
