They're certain things you just do not say around Horsefly or you will bring down the wrath of the Charlie. Words such as Bowling Alley, Walmart and Kroger get his motor to running and he has to go then and right there. You basically have to drop what your doing and go, or there will be hell, as in a severe tantrum, to pay. Horsefly has also been known to try and jump out of a moving car when he doesn’t get to go once this process of the spoken word is underway. You just can’t say no or reason with him.
Mom can be similar in a way. You have to be very careful what you say in front her as it can set off a chain of events akin to a snowball rolling downhill. Things can also get very complicated at the drop of a hat.
I had made mention to mom this morning that I was going to try and find cheaper frozen sausage biscuits that would be easy to warm up for my pups in the morning. I want to come home when I get off work and not sit in the drive thru line at Mickey D’s which is always gangbusters at 7am. Mom then took it upon herself to look for the biscuits for the dog’s sake. Little did I know that mom went on a two hour, three grocery store crusade to find frozen sausage biscuits that were similar to McDonald's. I thought she was only going to be gone for 30 minutes and she showed up hours later. I am sure I will hear something about this from my father when he gets off from work tonight.
