Don't Mess with the Bull or You'll Get the Electric Fence

Charlotte McMullenThere’s an old saying, “One day you’ll look back and laugh,” and there’s a newer, more comical version, “Someday we’ll look back on this, laugh nervously and quickly change the subject.”

Good stories should be told, and I have a self-deprecating story I can laugh about now.

It was 2009. We'd been married for nine years. My husband was away for the day. He called and asked if I’d check on the farm.

I was hoping for a quick look around, followed by a nice return call confirming all was fine, ending with the usual, “What would you like for supper?” Unfortunately, the animals had other plans.

Cows were running in a newly seeded field; that meant the kind of call I dreaded.



“Those cows will ruin the field. Get them out of there!” husband said.
