In one of my previous blogs I had mentioned that I had lost a bet to Cowboy. And as much as I hate to admit it to y’all, that man continues to “one up” me on a daily basis. One would think that after being together as long as we have, I could figure out a way to be one step ahead of him. But do not fear, this gal does not back down from a challenge…even he is wearing a great-fitting pair of wranglers-
So, losing the bet resulted in me watching Bonanza with him…every…single…night. After the 30th episode of Bonanza, I was done D.O.N.E.! Seriously y’all, how many times can Little Joe get shot and how much food can Hos eat in an episode?! I literally want to poke someone’s eyeball out.
As we sit down to watch one more episode I turn to look at Cowboy, okay it was more like a glare-
COWBOY: What is wrong with you? Why are you giving me the stink eye?
ME: Which one of your eyeballs do you value the most?
COWBOY: Why are you asking me that question?
ME: Because if we watch one more Bonanza episode, I’m gonna need to poke one of them out. So take your pick!
At that time, Boy Wonder calls so I escape into another room hoping that when their conversation ends he’ll either forget about the western or it’ll be over…either way works for me.
COWBOY: (speaking to Boy Wonder) Perfect timing, your mama just told me she was poking out one of my eyeballs.
BOY WONDER: (chuckling) Are you making her watch Bonanza again?
COWBOY: A bet is a bet. And when you lose you have to suffer the consequence. You’d think that after 30 years she would get tired of losing.
BOY WONDER: Why don’t y’all try Netflix? You’d like the Longmire series. It’s based on a book.
COWBOY: Where do we do that at?
BOY WONDER (chuckling) It’s on your remote control.
After 30 minutes I walk back into our gathering room and I notice that Cowboy is watching something other than Bonanza (thank the sweet Lord).
ME: What are you watching? Is that a movie? How did you do that? (again with my 3 questions)
As he’s leaning back into Lolita’s arms (yes, I named his recliner)-
COWBOY: It’s a Netflix series called Longmire. (Sighing) I’m pretty smart when it comes to technology. Yep…I’ve got this stuff figured out.
ME: Ummm, this coming from a person that still has a flip phone. Next you’re going to tell me that you figured out how to text.
After watching 2 episodes of Longmire we decide to call it a night. As I walk into our bedroom I notice that I’ve just received a text.
ME: (talking to Cowboy) You just texted me?
The text: “Yee of little faith”.
ME: Sweet Jesus.
’til next Sunday y’all- Tammy
