I asked Google to tell me a joke.
She said, “Why does the scarecrow keep being promoted? Because he’s outstanding in his field.”
After that, I feel better about my jokes, and it made me think of this song.
This is one of those country songs that makes my daughter cringe. She doesn’t care for it much, because she knows how easily it can become a reality.
Our first home together, living solo, was on 40 acres. The drive to the house was down this long, winding country road. It was beautiful, but you felt like you were out in the middle of nowhere. This song had been released around that time.
During the drive, you would see these huge piles of wood out in the middle of empty fields. With a lit match, that would become somebody’s Friday night.
Songs like this bring out that little bit of crazy Redneck I have ingrained in me.
I drive a truck, and boots, jeans and a t-shirt are still my favorite clothes.
What is it they say? “You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.”
We’re outstanding in our field.
