Half-Assed Weekend 1/29/11

In true Simple Dude fashion, it's a half-assed weekend post.

This morning I went to Saddle Pals to freeze my ass off for a few hours. Luckily for my frozen ass I got to leave early, as they had plenty of people for the last lesson, so I climbed in my car and turned the heater on high.

My first lesson starts at 10am. When I get there a few minutes before, there's an independent rider who is just finishing up. Nearly every time he sees me, he "meets" me. As in, "Hi, I'm (insert name here)". I reply with my name. Every time. Seriously. But that's okay, because I've never actually worked with him. This morning he was quite talkative, and was telling a joke. I didn't hear it the first time because I was listening to someone else say something. He came over to me and asked if it was funny. I apologized for not hearing his joke. He was eager to tell me his joke.

Why does a chicken coup only have two doors?

I don't know. 

Because if it had four doors, it would be a chicken sedan.

Well. I laughed. Because it's just corny enough.

Happy Weekend. I'm back to packing and cleaning!


  1. Maybe the rider has that "doesn't recognize faces" thing going on, who knows? I will have to remember that joke. My grandfather will like it.

  2. That is a corny joke, but cute none the less.


  3. Soapbox - A lot of the kids don't really remember people well unless you constantly work with them. This guy I've seen in passing over the 3 years I've been there, so I'm never surprised that doesn't remember me. Last time he "met" me, he asked if we had met, and I replied with, "I think at the horse show last year. It's nice to meet you." :o)

    CBG - Yes, very corny. But he was just so excited to tell it.

  4. Bless him, that was corny as heck, but you just have to laugh, if only for his benefit.


I love comments. Please leave one. :o)
