A Horse Is A Horse, Of Course, Of Course...

"If a guy makes me laugh, I'm his slave for life."
~Bette Midler


There are several thousand reasons why I am unequivocally truly, madly, deeply in love with my guy, Steve. His irreverantly smart-ass brand of humor is just one of the reasons, but it's damn near the top of the list. There is nothing that will keep my head and heart in a whirl like a man who can make me laugh until I'm gasping for air.


Lately my mate has been perusing craigslist.com in search of boats and boat related stuff to purchase and resell at a profit (he's good at it... knows his stuff and his market very well). So, this morning he was going through ads and came across one that had obviously been placed in the wrong category. In the "Boats for Sale" section, a woman had placed an ad looking for property to graze her horses. Steve being... well... Steve, he just couldn't resist responding. As he read me his response, I had tears rolling down my cheeks I was laughing so hard (it's that visual thang I've got goin' on). What follows is his response to the ad:


"Hello,


I don’t know if you realize it or not, but, you listed your ad in the “Boats for Sale ” section of Craig’s List.


I trust your Horses are equipped with a Wet Suit and Scuba Gear, or they enjoy Water Skiing and Fishing.


And then there is Kayaking, Wind Surfing, Canoeing, and White Water Rafting.


Of course Sailing to the San Juan Islands is always an option also.


It is rare to see our four legged equestrian friends enjoying the activities listed above.


But, My horse definitey enjoyed playing in the water.


Steve"
