1. Redbox is a vending machine for movie rentals ! Of course I'd heard of Redbox, but I had no idea until this year what it actually was or where I might find such a thing. (I'm aware this has absolutely nothing to do with horses !)
2. If you pull up old fence wire with your city born wife who (thankfully) had no idea what this entailed ahead of time, you're guaranteed ten curse words a minute between you, no matter how unlikely that may seem while reading this at home. Don't believe me ? Give it a try and report back to me.
3. It doesn't matter how much money your southern born wife spends in pursuit of winter time comfort, if it rains and snows hard enough for long enough she's going to be wet, cold and miserable anyway! (Please don't tell her I said this).
4. It's not very manly to dress up your fainting goat for Hallowe'en.
5. We buy gravel the in exactly the way some people buy tobacco products or alcohol. I wonder if there's a group called "Gravalholics Anonymous".
6. Frogs, bleach, wives and water troughs don't mix well at all.
7. If you are going to play pasture strip tease with your southern wife, for your sake wait until it's a lot warmer than 43 degrees outside ! :)
8. Some rocks aren't going to move no matter how much effort you put into it.
Melissa here. I saw this post and asked Jason if he forgot to finish writing it. He said no. I said "but your list only has 1-8, aren't these usually top 10 type lists?" He just shrugged his shoulders and walked away so . . . I guess this means he hasn't learned anything else??? I was hoping that number 9 would be something like "I've learned my wife usually hands out excellent advice and now I listen to her." 2011 is not over yet so Jason still has time to learn one more thing.
