A Third Conversation

Long story short - a girl, now woman, Beth used to babysit is moving up here for a while to work with a local horse breeder. We were discussing her employment and educational opportunities over dinner.

Her: She's coming up in January after she goes to school for a semester.
Me: Then she'll be up here for a year, right?
Her: Yeah. Maybe after working she'll decide college is the best way to go. Or maybe she'll just decide she wants to be a farrier for good.
Me: Well, who cares if she's gay?
Her: Ha ha. You know what I mean.
Me: That's right. A farrier is someone who goes around making other people gay.

I actually laughed out loud, you'll be happy to know.

Chris, you have NO IDEA how good it feels to have a name for what I've been doing all these years! ;-)

This one I'm passing on to my son (and then I'll have to explain the real meaning to him).

I may or may not have snorted, I laughed so hard.
Of course, being "horse people" I knew what it meant in the first place heh.

Heather! You're a snorter too??? Wonder what word Chris has for us???? All this time, I thought it was "ferrier". *red face*
You guys put the Ricardo's to shame...

That's hilarious.

Next time I see our farrier I'm going to tell him that I'm in on his little secret...

Huh...I had never heard this word until today. It's awesome.

My Dad always shoes his own horses. And has also raised two gay sons.

Think about that one!
