wings and things


on May 7, 2014

It’s been a busy week, punctuated by strange occurrences. For example, as I rode my bicycle home the other day (from my incredibly long 2 kilometre challenge), I took a short-cut across the front lawn and saw this:


I assumed that it was a cowpat (you know, the stuff that comes out of a cow’s bottom, ordinarily called cowshit but I am being polite), but none of our neighbours’ cattle usually visit, so then I thought maybe the alpacas, Okami and Uluru, had had a pooing competition, but the pile of whatever-it-was was too big to fit either of these possible scenarios, and, even though geese and ducks produce a lot of this kind of thing, they tend to do it all over the place and not in one spot.

Later in the day I told Ming about it:

Me: There’s this huge pile of shxx on the front lawn – have you seen it?
Ming: No, it’s probably your stupid birds.
Me: No this is massive and it looks really weird, like a UFO or something.
Ming: Don’t worry about it!
Me: Would you mind coming out and having a look?
Ming: Grrr – okay.

So I showed Ming and he started to laugh hysterically.

Me: What’s so funny?
Ming: Remember that pea soup you made and forgot to put in the frig and asked me to throw out?
Me: Oh.

    Too funny. I’m curious now to see how long it will take to disappear. Maybe something interesting will grow there! 🙂

    I’m also wondering how long it will take to disappear.
    I don’t mean to be rude, but………It looks like wood glue and sawdust………REALLY!
    I can’t stop laughing.

  10. Haha, that’s funny! Thanks for my morning chuckle!

  11. Ming, Ming, Ming. He could have picked a better spot to dump it, but then you wouldn’t have this funny bit to write about. 😀

  12. Judy says:

    Well – you were on the right track. It’s just “pee” instead of poop! (Even the comment above mentioned pissing while laughing!) Thanks for a great laugh this morning, Julie. 🙂

  13. Ha ha – did the birds turn it down?

  14. Oh gawd, that made me laugh. How come none of the animals ate it?

  15. You gave me the laugh of the week…! Diane

  16. ksbeth says:

    so funny, so funny ) i’m going to stick with my alien ufo theory.

    Oh my goodness. Careful, it may attract the wildlife that you don’t want hanging around the yard.unless it is so bad that it acts as a repellent.( I am ducking as I type this).

  18. Trisha says:

    LOL!!! That’s hilarious! He just dumps it in the yard. Sounds exactly like what my son Daniel would have done. Just from the picture I was very puzzled about what animal poops in such a round patty!

  19. You wrote a while ago (when you were in a distressed place) how some people are able to simply get over things and the ‘get back on the bike’ and you were not. I am ever SO happy for you that you are now back on your bike! 🙂

  20. tootlepedal says:

    I am glad that the cycle got an outing if if the pea soup was …… less than eatable.

  21. Hahahahaha! GROSS! 🙂

  22. bluebee says:

    LOL! My husband gets so mad when I throw leftovers into the garden, but they’re biodegradable, right? He thinks I’m being uncivilised 😃

  23. Now this was funny

  24. Terry says:

    I couldn’t help but laugh throughout this. Thanks for lifting me up!!!

  25. tersiaburger says:

    I had a good giggle over this post. I must admit my friend that it does not nearly resemble soup… The fact that the birds did not devour it says it all…. I do love you so much my dear cyberfriend!

  26. Rachel's Ramblings says:

    Looks like a cow pat. One slice or two 😉

  27. FlaHam says:

    Julie, When am I suppose to stop laughing ?????? Take care, Bill

  28. We called them cowpies in Texas. After they dried, they made great flying saucers and Frisbees, which now brings back many of those cowpie fights I had in high school. My wise old grandmother was none too happy when I came home smelling and looking like tihs.
