I have provided years of laughter and entertainment to my dear husband, Rob. Because I TRUST HIM, I mean shouldn’t wives trust their husbands? Seriously! 🙂 Anyhow, because I TRUST HIM, I believe what he tells me….
Many long years ago, shortly after we were married, Rob told me the amazing news that there was a shortage of cows milk and therefore they had devised a way to use pigs milk and were creating pig dairies. He told me that a news report showed how they made special machines to hook up to the mama pig to “milk” her just like they did to cows. He went on and on and again – because I TRUST HIM – I believed him. I even went to work the next day with the fascinating story of pig dairies. Yes, I did get funny looks – people hiding their amusement at how gullible I was. Finally my boss told me, “Honey, I think your husband is pulling your leg!” I went home and asked Rob…he laughed and said he thought I knew he was kidding. 🙂
Well, we recently watched the Astronaut Farmer.
Rob again tells me….this is based on a true story! I was fascinated that anyone could really build a spaceship in his barn and actually launch into outer space! We watched the whole thing and I was still amazed. We watched the special features and there was a picture of Billy Bob Thornton with some other Texas farmer dude. “See honey, that’s the real guy!” Rob delights to tell me. “Doesn’t he look like someone who would do that?” Of course I again – because I TRUST HIM – believe him. Then I started thinking about it – there’s no way that could ever happen….right? We watch more of the special features – an interview with an astronaut who says “This is a nice story, a fantasy about a family dreaming together….” Ok, ok, I see now, we’re back to the pig dairy scenario. At least I didn’t go to work and tell everyone about it – I just blogged it all for the world to see! 🙂
I’m secure in my gullible-ness! That’s right!
(Footnote: I even double checked to see if it might have been really true on the internet today….all I found was that it was based on a true story of a guy stuck in a cave? That doesn’t even make sense – how do you get flying into space from a guy stuck in a cave?!)
