Jason and I have been doing some true glamour jobs around the farm lately. Today's was particularly glamorous as it consisted of cleaning out a run-in shed so we could spread new gravel in it. Since it hasn't rained in about a month, and we're currently about 17 inches below normal rainfall for the year, it would be an understatement to say there is a lot of dust. A LOT of dust. Everywhere.
Armed with shovels and the front end loader of one of the tractors Jason and I created an epic dust cloud as we cleaned out the shed. As I was inhaling dust while shoveling poop and dirt I did have the thought, "so this is why I went to college?"
Jason and I were disgusting by the time we were finished. When I shook my hair dust came off me. I told Jason I was doing my best imitation of a horse shaking after a roll in the dust. Despite being so dirty all I wanted to do was get away from myself, I still wouldn't trade my life for a return to corporate America. Been there, done that - I'll take the dust.
