My day started yesterday with pregnancy testing 240 heifers yesterday - they had been hauled in to the auction mart to do, and after the first 50 was done, we had a coffee break - with Tim Horton's doughnuts no less! Oh, and there was a little bit of Bailey's as well. There happened to be a few more coffee breaks as we waited for loads to come, but we got them all done in pretty good time. You see, last night was the Mankota Community Christmas Party - and Chris and I went. When I got home and cleaned up, I thought I should start getting comforted with some Southern Comfort. By the time we got to supper, the Comfort had hit me hard. This is where I have to apologize - in order to eat, our tables had to tell a joke or sing. I chose to tell a joke - and then helped a few other tables to eat when I told jokes for them. After the last joke, I was asked not to do anymore - on account that I had made one person leave. Oops. Reminder to self - no native jokes. Guess I will have to find a bunch of Newfie jokes now - I don't think there are any in the community. Can't tell blonde jokes - there are loads of them about. Maybe fat jokes would work next time. Maybe I should just learn to shut my mouth.
I am not quite sure how long we stayed, but there was some dancing done, losing an earring in the production.
I woke up this morning, having lost the other earring...and somehow my glasses. I looked everywhere (which was quite difficult) that I could think of. I finally found them on the floor of Dora the Explorer. I also found my earring, and the mate was found swept up from the dance.
I do believe somebody spiked my drinks last night. I didn't drink that much...I don't think anyways...as much as I remember.
Yup, the vet in Mankota can tie one on. I certainly don't see my self tieing one on in the near future. I don't think Mankota can take it....and neither can my head.
