To protect the innocent, I must code the names of those involved. The codes shall be as follows - The One Who Just Moved to Texas, The One Who's House They Were At, The One Visiting Texas, The One With Many Brothers and Sisters, AND, last but not least, The One Who Writes This Post.
Here are the Ones - looking so innocent and eager to bust a myth.
The One Visiting Texas was convinced that cow's can be tipped. The One Who Writes This Post tried in vain to convince her that it is a myth. The One Who's House They Were At said, "There's only one way to find out. Come over and we shall go out late at night." The One Who Just Moved to Texas and The One With Many Brothers and Sisters decided to join in on the fun.
Off they went on The One Who's House They Were At's golf cart. Over the river and through the woods, to the cow pasture they drove. They climbed with great carefulness through the barbed-wire fence. They marched with great stealth in the complete opposite direction of the cows. The moon shone bright and the neighbor's dog heard them, barked loudly, and caused quite a fright in The One With Many Brothers and Sisters. The Ones ran the other way, which happened to be right where they needed to go, for it was there that the cows were.
The Ones decided to link arms and walk in a huddle, trying to convince the cows that they themselves were just another cow, slowly ambling their way. That MIGHT'VE been The One Who Writes This Post's idea, but I can't say for sure, because fright does many strange things to a person. The Ones finally became close enough to the cows to see that they were lying down, not standing up. Minus one point for The One Visiting Texas, plus one point for The One Who Writes This Post.
One small, very small, cow stands up. Looks The Ones in the eye. Nods it's head.
The One's halt the huddle.
The One Who's House They Were At - "I think he means 'Bring It On, let's fight'!"
The One Who Writes This Post - "I think it's just a friendly nod."
The One Visiting Texas - "Whimper."
The One Who Just Moved to Texas - "Ha. Ha."
The Ones' footsteps - backwards.
The cow comes closer. The backward footsteps become more frequent and unsteady. The Ones do a unison swivel and make like a freight train back to the fence. They probably SCARED the poor calf.
The One With Many Brothers and Sisters - "I think I just... said a bad word."
The One Whos House They Were At - "BWHAHAA... RUN LIKE THE WIND!!!"
Back to the trusty old golf cart they ran.
