So Sad, So True

This is a public service announcement...

In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses.

This substance, called "amobacter equuii" has been linked with the following symptoms in females:

Reluctance to cook, clean or do housework.

Reluctance to wear make-up, good clothes or heels.

Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs until after "baby has new shoes, pad, blanket, tack, grain, hay & supplements".

"Amobacter equuii" usually results in long hours away from home and exhaustion
which may lead to a loss of physical contact with other
humans (especially husbands).

"Amobacter equuii" is thought to be addictive, driving the need for additional
sources - this may lead to a "herd mentality" or like the potato chip commercial, "you can't have just one".

Beware! If you come in contact with a female human infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours.

Surgeon General's Warning:

Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense.


  1. I love it! You are too clever for words! I think this is an illness you don't mind having.

  2. I wish I could take credit, but I didn't write this, it came in an email! But I sure could have written it. : )

  3. Love it! I must be infected too. I hope the cure is never found ;)

  4. I'm surprised, I thought for sure it was you. I, too, would be totally consumed by those beeeeautiful beasts. Horses, elephants, dogs or dolphins could make my world.

  5. ROFLMAO! I was reading the beginning thinking.."for real?" Then I started reading what the symptoms were. Oh yeah, I'm infected and definitely a carrier!

  6. Definately infected lol

  7. hmmm, and right as we are considering buying a lovely 12-year-old danish warmblood...well, i think it's a disease i'd like to have. :-)

  8. Ha!! Before I realized this was a joke I was thinking I will take a dose of that over any of the meds i was taking (and stopped taking in spite of what I was told) I am sure the side affects are waaaaaay less dangerous and easier to live with.

  9. Heeheehee! I have no horses but ALL the symptoms! Maybe I will get a horse yet?

  10. This sounds serious. Is there an antidote yet?

  11. Well, I see this disease has already reached the scope of being pandemic! And this is a good thing. : )


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
