My husband was excited about the cougar. I didn't quite get HOW excited. We are going to have it taxidermed, and probably put on a ledge in our house. (Mostly his idea.) He brought the cougar to the Substation, while I was there, so *I* could show the deputies the cougar. (I let the deputies know, and honestly, I wished I had a camera, Husband and a group of deputies all standing in the back of his dually.) Husband has driven the cougar to various people in our neighborhood that knew about the cougar, he told the UPS guy, he's sent the pictures to various friends near and far... That cougar has gotten more windshield time, so to speak, than I have this week.
Am I just a little on the b*tchy side when I say that I am glad that he's excited about the cougar, but the @@@@ thing killed my llama, and I wish both were still alive, so I am just not that WOOT WOOT excited?
The cougar has even gone viral with the deputies, one of them took pictures and now they are all asking about the big cougar one of the volunteer's husband brought in. It has made for some interesting conversation, since I haven't met a few of the deputies, (worked on a different day, and so have met guys that I have missed, because they are out and about on the other day), so I guess that is good, but still...
I am certainly hoping something else takes up the conversation pretty soon. A dead cougar seems to garner a lot more excitement (and sympathy) than MY LLAMA.
MY DEAD LLAMA.
Ahem. Sorry. Just a little aggrivated. Oh, well, this too will pass, I suppose.
In other news, I have our Christmas trees down. One is a tiny table sized one, that I can now PUT UP in my Craft Room, I have room for it! YAAAYYY!!! The other is a 5-6 foot, somewhere around there, sized tree, in three pieces, with lights built in.
Why fake trees? Comprimise. We have had real trees, and I still would love to have them, but Husband and I always seem to start having allergy flare ups. Husband also considers the Christmas decorating and that ilk to be 'fluff', (read: he don't decorate), so it has to be stuff that I can manage. So, fake pop-up style tree. (which I got at a store where it was a demo model, they said I could take it for a paltry sum, or they'd chuck it in the trash. Plus, they gave me enough ornaments for at least a couple trees. As one of my friends says, Sweeeet.) I will probably set up stuff today, decorate possibly tomorrow, maybe, and then start figuring out what is left for gift getting. But mostly, I think I will work on Christmas cards.
(Which I was told by a friend, gee you have a great story for your Christmas letter. Oh, yeah, hey, in this the season of Christmas, we had a llama killed, and had the cougar killed that killed it. Yeffir, greeeeeeeaaaaat...)
But I'm not bitter.
