Why are horses always so negative?
They say, “neigh” to everything.
I am really savvy when it comes to modern technology. (You can tell I’m joking already.) In fact, when we first got cell phones, Bud had to go to the hospital for some tests. I took his cell phone while he was having a test done and went to get a cup of coffee. I was standing in line behind a woman who had a very large order. I heard a ringing sound and asked her if she heard it. She said she did. I wondered aloud what it was. Then, speaking to anyone who cared to listen, I said, “Oh, I bet it’s one of those sensors that let’s the cashier know when someone enters.” I walked back and forth, listening for the sound. It sounded several times, but there was no correlation to where I stood and when it sounded. I made quite a spectacle moving around and looking up for what I was certain was the sensor triggering the ringing. It finally stopped.
Finally I got up to the barista and ordered. When I reached into my pocket to get some change, I noticed the cell phone. It indicated that I had missed a call. Then, loud enough to make sure everyone knew how smart I was, I said, “It was my cell phone!”
But I’m not the only one in my family to do stupid stuff. Tomorrow I’ll tell on some of my brothers and sisters. But at least we do laugh at ourselves. We have to.
