Last night, MLH was out on his lease, working, and was planning on staying in Pecos. Younger Son and I went to meet Sarah and her mom, Rhonda at Chili’s for supper.
We left the restaurant and we were all standing in front of our trucks talking. We heard this noise, and looked at each other like a calf looking at a new gate. The first thing that went through our minds was “Rattlesnake!”, so we all froze.
And then, we got it.
In less time than it takes to say "Run!", all four of us were soaked by the automatic sprinklers.
It’s been a long time since I’ve laughed so hard that my stomach hurts, but it does.
