It was Friday night. Smooch was in the backyard barking at coyotes and Johnny and I were curled up on the couch.
We were all exactly where we wanted to be.
Johnny was being particularly attentive and affectionate. I believe he sensed
the PTSD (Purchasing Tires Stress Disorder) I had developed earlier in the day during a tortuous trip to town.
I hauled out my laptop to see what was going on in the world when this message arrived
from dear friend and blog reader Oma Linda, who knows me too well:
"I don't know if you are familiar with the country artist Jerrod Niemann but he has a new song out titled 'Donkey'..."
I clicked on the link to give it a listen.
Johnny: Did he just rhyme donkey donkey with honky tonky?
Johnny: Why are you laughing so hard?
Me: It's not often you hear a song about a guy who puts his Chevy into a ditch
and ends up riding his donkey to town.
