If you didn't read the previous post - this is just a follow-up.
It was pretty anticlimactic.
After many calls to Edna where she never answered, I loaded the kids into the car to drive over there with our gardening gloves and grubby jeans. We knocked on her door to report for duty - still no answer. I was beginning to worry about her.
We walked back to the barn and peaked into the stalls to see what was in store for us.
Those stalls were unbelievably, spotlessly clean.
So, we left, and I continued to call Edna until she finally returned my call.
This time it was a whole different story. Her voice was bright and chipper, and she said she felt much better and had no problem now taking care of the horses.
So, it's the thought that counts, right? I mean, I was willing to help her, and I didn't just hang up the phone originally, pretending that I didn't understand her, like my husband said to do.
So, God, do I still get all the points as if I had actually done the dirty deed of cleaning up behind the majestic creatures that are so much nicer when you don't have to clean up behind them?
I'm not sure though if I actually believe in domesticating animals like this. Would I get more points for sneaking around at night and letting all the locked up horses run free?
