Farran grew up on a cattle ranch. Wait, that sounds wrong. Can you call it a ranch if it’s on the East Coast? A cattle farm? That sounds wrong too. Anyway, cows. Which apparently led him to describe a mutual acquaintance thusly;
“She’s what you would call ‘high-stung’ if she were a horse.” Thoughtful pause. “If she were a cow, we would probably just shoot her.”
I am still laughing about this. I think I need to start working it into conversations all casual like. “Bill? Oh, yeah, Bill is a jerk. If he was a cow, we would probably just shoot him.” Or, “Yeah, that copier is really fucked up. If it were a cow, we would probably just shoot it.”
People will probably just think I am nuts, but I will be entertained.
