Pay No Attention To The Goat

So I might need a pet goat. 'Cause ADORABLE.

I was so excited to write today’s post. All night, every time I woke up, I thought of how easy it’d be to write.

In fact, I pre-wrote a good portion.

All I’d have to do was upload the photos from my phone, write out the words and ta da.

Only then this morning came.

And I turned on my computer.

And I grabbed my phone.

And I hadn’t actually gotten to the point of scrolling through my photos before I realized that the pics needed for my post?

The photographs I took yesterday of Lindsey’s pet bison, next to the unknown man wearing a Big Bird costume?

Those photos don’t exist.

Because that didn’t really happen.

Because Lindsey doesn’t have a pet bison.

And if she did, and I was photographing said bison, and a stranger walked up dressed as Big Bird and sat down next to Ted the Bison, I wouldn’t react by calming continuing to take photos.

And not only because of my fear of people in costumes.

But also because of my fear of serial killers.

‘Cause there’s no way the surprise-man-dressed-as-Big-Bird story ends well.

I’m probably being haunted by dreams of Big Bird

As punishment

For my strong feelings regarding Snuffy’s reveal,

    Although I would be frightened for you, I’m still pretty sad that post doesn’t exist because it would be hilarious. Maybe we could rent a bison and reenact it. Would you still love me if I dressed as Big Bird for a blog post?

      That sounds amazing. And also really hard to organize. But I’m in.

        And people laughed when I talked about opening my bison rental store. Well, WHO’S LAUGHING NOW!?!?

    I’m so very tempted to send you post cards from all over the world, from Ted the Bison.

    • Megan November 13, 2012, 3:53 pm

      That would be my favorite of all things that have ever happened.

  • Lindsey November 13, 2012, 4:07 pm

    This post makes me wish I had a pet bison. I would totally name him Ted.

  • Lindsey November 13, 2012, 4:07 pm

    This post also makes me wish you had an adorable pet goat.

    And I do believe we are soul mates. LOL! Love this

    You have the awesomest dreams.

  • craftosaurus November 13, 2012, 5:41 pm

    Dude, tell us about the goat!

    (Apparently I don’t follow directions well.)

  • Kari @ bite-sized thoughts November 13, 2012, 11:19 pm

    But on the plus side, you’ve got a great picture of a goat that we aren’t paying any attention to!

    That was fun. And I will never look at a person in the costume the same again. Thankfully Oklahoma has an “Open carry” law now. So I can just show them my Beretta strapped daringly to my thigh and hopefully they will be thwarted. Now, to go get a Beretta and a permit, and perhaps a class or two on gun safety so I can protect my children from all of those serial killers running about in Big Bird costumes.

    Pet bison tastes a bit like seitan.
    TOTALLY kidding!
    But yes, really!

  • Nami November 15, 2012, 10:56 pm

    Aren’t Bison extinct? Or is that Buffalo – I get confused because I love their wings.

  • Mindee@ourfrontdoor November 17, 2012, 10:51 pm


    You know how goats freak me out!

    Not even the distraction of mentioning feathered serial killers can detract from their seitanic eyes!

    • Skye November 20, 2012, 2:19 pm

      Seitanic is my new favorite word.
