Heads or Tails *Direction*

At our going away party, before moving to the new state, a very dear friend of mine, whom I refer to as my second father, asked, "Are you going to have an address out there?"

"Yep." I replied.

"Do you want to expand on that?" he asked.

I got my 'I'm rotten to the core and totally sarcastic' grin on my face and replied, "It's 1234 Highway Middle of Nowhere. Just turn left at the cow."

He pretty much called me a smart a*s and started laughing.

When my dad and I were making the trip to move me out here. We were just coming through an adjoining town, and there ahead of us was a giant cow. A great big giant cow standing in front of the town's auction barn. I burst out laughing and told my dad about my conversation with my second dad (dad wasn't at the going away party, but he could fully respect my sarcasm to my second dad, because my dad and second dad are best friends.... was that confusing?). My dad just got this big grin on his face and said, "Guess what Mist. You need to turn left here to head to your house!"

We were laughing so hard that we had to pull over to the side of the road before we could continue on our journey.

Now, whenever I work at the insurance company, I pass that cow. I always think of my dad and me sitting in the car laughing so hard we had tears streaming down our face, and it always makes me smile, as I "turn left at the cow" to head back to my house :-)

Perfect. Hilarious!!!

My oldest son used to laugh at how I gave directions because I never knew the names of streets and such. Then came a time when I had to give him directions from one side of the state to another.. and I emailed him how to get there.

My directions included turning where Old Mrs. Stout used to live etc. He thought it was hilarious and shared it with his friends. :)
