I'm sure we all have conversations with friends and family members which... to the outside world... would be quite peculiar.
I thought I'd share this one that happened recently when my husband called on the cell phone from the van, just a few minutes after leaving home.
Ring, ring, ring...
Me: Hello? You just left!
Hubby: Hey, you will never guess what just ran in front of the van!
Silence... insert chirping of crickets here.
Hubby: No, an eight point buck! It came out of the field by the horse ranch, ran across the road, and into the forest.
Me: Are you sure it wasn't Bigfoot?
Insert more chirping of crickets...
Hubby: I think I know the difference between Bigfoot and a deer.
Me: It's a good thing you didn't run into it, that would have damaged the van but good.
Hubby: Yeah, it was already running but it looked over toward me and probably thought, "I can make that easily!".
Me: I don't doubt it. After all, it was a male.
I think at this time he decided he'd better pay attention to the country roads. Either that or he wasn't getting anywhere in this conversation.
