It's sad really..

The highlight of my week:

The Partner:'Sling..Get down there and remove that sprinkler valve so we can replace it'.

Sling:'Is the master valve off?'

The Partner:'Yeah..Don't worry..Just stick your whole face down there and unscrew that puppy!'..

The Partner:'I musta turned off the wrong one'..

Sling:*CHOKE*..*Gurgle*..*COUGH*...YA THINK??'

The sad part isn't that I got literally knocked on my ass.
The sad part, that it was the most fun I had all week.

Maybe I'll get lucky,and catch the Pig Flu next week.

Lost- True story..The local college has an Ag program which includes raising hybrid pigs.
They are restricting visitor access,not to protect the people,but to protect the pigs!

That was sort of "swinish" of Partner wasn't it?

I would have been scared to death with all that water....I can't swim. Unexciting events must be a virus because the last few weeks for me have been.....b.o.r.i.n.g. I'm hoping that my rural living and mole-like tendencies will keep me from getting porked.

I'm seeing "Sling the Movie" coming from all this excitement.

The partner had better be very careful. Revenge can be such fun.

I like time hand camera to partner so he can catch you in action.

He is a dirty rotten bastard isn't he?

The Partner and I had a pretty good laugh over it actually. :)
Plus!..I saved the video,(while he was running to turn off the correct valve), so I could use it as insurance against the next time I screw something up..Oh yes..It's definitely gonna come in handy.

Too bad you didn't get being knocked on your ass on film... it would have been most entertaining for all of us, even if not so much for you.

A lesson there Sling, the person in the mirror is the one you can trust the most when it comes to your own well being...had a great laugh...some really funny things happen at work when you least expect it...are you sure he wasn't "expecting" it...ahem?

That's all well and good but promise me that if you ever have occassion to be in a field ladden with poisonous snakes and Partner says, "Yeah, Sling, I done wrangled 'em just go on in there with your bare feet and chest exposed and move those sprinklers" you'll make him do it.

You'd think my favorite thing about your new job would be that you have a job, but I'm forced to admit that my favorite thing is obviously that slap stick humor. This is like the ... the second season of the Honeymooners.

Or is that just me?

LOL! My week wasn't exactly full of fun, either--but hell, it's Friday, and Sling got knocked on his ass from a blast of life is good. *hee hee*
