The more you speak of yourself, the more you are likely to lie.
Johann Georg von Zimmerman
Since the weather has kept me on the sidelines of that whole haying thing I thought I may as well take advantage of the time I had, you know between the wedding preparations and all that cleaning and de-cluttering thing, to enter some things in the county fair to support its agricultural roots. One thing I do know a little about is agriculture and thought it was important for urban/city dwellers to know what really goes on in the farms surrounding their homes.
I went through my photos and picked out some that would highlight the farm lifestyle, meaning photos of Bossy2 and her cute little calf. I am sure you know by now that since Bossy2 continues to jump in front of the camera pushing everyone else out of the way with her Diva ways I seem to have accumulated quite a few of those.
I walked in the barn at the fair on Friday night after entering my things the night before and was delighted to see many photos of Bossy2 hanging for the whole world to see with red ribbons adorning, I was excited and could not wait to tell her, she would be very pleased indeed. I continued over to the knitted section where I had entered one off those hats that Bossy2 has worn for those photo shoots and surprisingly a red ribbon was hanging from it. This pleased me to no end because now it was official I could call myself a knitter and I knew Bossy2 was really going to love that. She could wear an actual red ribbon hat now.
Then I started to wonder if I should tell Bossy2 and the other girls about the photos at all because I had neglected to enter any photos of Girl or Sally or even Annie. Oh why had I not entered any of them they are just as adorable? Well I did know Annie does not like posing for photos any more so she was never going to be in any photos, oh that whole darn weaning thing continues to haunt me and keeps a rift between us, and I do hope she gets over that eventually. How could I have forgotten to enter Girl photos she continues to be jealous of Bossy2 and tries to push her out of the way and wants the attention and I had completely ignored her, I am never going to hear the end of that, this I knew for sure.
I am going to think long and hard about showing Bossy2 the ribbons because I am thinking her head will swell and she will think she is too good for all of us and demand to be treated like the Diva she truly believes she is. The other girls would not be able to be around her because she would be bragging and talking about her new found red ribbon fame forever.
You know now that I think of it I really don’t like the kind of people that brag about their accomplishments and tell everyone about all the red ribbons they won at the fair; do you?
I do think this is a nice shot for next year; it would appear Bossy2 is not the only photogenic one in my crowd.
I have decided I will not tell Bossy2, I truly believe Divas do indeed need to be ignored sometimes to keep them humble. What do you think?
