I was just answering some comments on one of my posts. The post had lots of comments, and if you read my posts regularly, you know that I usually get some really great, introspective comments.
Well... one of my commentors was making his comment, and he said something about something that "gets his goat..." which he then explained.
All of which led ME to make the following self-question and observation:
Serious question here. When something "gets your goat..." What do you do ? Do you go out and buy another goat, or do you just remain "goat'less ?"
I remember once... quite a while ago, when somebody really got my goat. I was ticked. And it wasn't the first time they had "gotten my goat."
So I thought... that's not gonna happen again. I am NOT gonna have you get MY goat... and then be "goat'less" again. So, I went out and bought TWO goats... so I'd have a spare the for the next time my "goat got gotten."
Well... ya gotta know what happened. We split up. No more of any of that "gettin' my goat" stuff. But... since I now had TWO goats... just in case... I thought... "what the heck am I gonna do with this extra goat ?"
And then, wouldn't ya know it... my two goats got "romantic" on me. Yeah... they "did it." They had a kid. So then I had THREE goats. Well, technically, I had two goats... a mom goat and a dad goat... and one kid. What a deal !
But... I guess it's just all a part of living in this frustrating world... and having my goat get gotten... one too many times. Arrrggghhh !
