Here it comes, rolling at me fast. FIDDY!! In all honesty, April 8, 2021 is just another dang day. Yet, I never planned on making it to fiddy. But, here I am the night before turning 50.
I have tried to schedule an appointment for new glasses. I need them. Bifocals are a distinct possibility. I have lost weight but a lot of that was muscle. I have also tried to schedule a palpation exam. Yes, the old prostate check. Luckily, I haven’t been able to schedule that deal….yet.
Speaking of palpations. I had a gas pump encounter with our local vet. During high school, I was working at the Ellis County Animal Hospital when this vet was hired. 30 plus years later, he has continued building a successful practice. We talked a bit and I mentioned that he wasn’t dressed for palpating cows. He was headed to OKC for a bi-annual shoulder and knee injection. I made a comment that palpating all of those cows weren’t good for a shoulder. He then told me that he had recently gone over his records to see just how many cows that he had palpated in his career. I knew the # was high as he is really good with bovine AI & ET. But, I’ll be honest 1.2 million was a bit higher than I expected. I’m also REAL sure that his records are spot on. That is a lot of crap to deal with.
I recently got one of my favorite texts of all time. A lady that I have NEVER met recently purchased several lots of buck semen. Then, she bought a few more straws this week. She texted me to see if I could release the newest purchase to add to her previous purchases which were to be shipped this week. She had a copy of her paid receipt, etc. I called REI to release these straws, but there was no answer. So, I replied back that I called, no answer but I would get it released. And then she replied:
“Thanks. I was going to call too but wanted to make sure you could get me laid first”
I just happened to have my phone in hand when the text came through. I read it. Wait. What? Then re-read it. I laughed out loud so hard that my co-teacher said, “I never hear you laugh like that unless something is really messed up!”
I handed her my phone and said, “Read this.” She did and then she laughed out loud while asking, “Do you know this person?” NO.
And then the PAID with a covered face emoji was sent. Auto-correct strikes again. I told the nice lady that I had gotten a hold of REI and it was ready to ship. Oh and I am still laughing. She was embarrassed.
Here’s my question. How often does she use the term “laid” that auto-correct changed it from paid to laid?
This kind of stuff did not happen fifty years ago. I can’t wait for the next couple of years. Probably not another fifty.
