Day 3

I’m not saying that I’d fuck my horse, but three days lost in the Arizona desert can do some pretty strange things to a person. To a man, alone. I don’t fuck horses. Well, fuck ‘um like maybe ride them harder than I should, sometimes, or not water ‘um as often as I should. I’ve killed horses that way. You can’t push ‘um too far. You can push ‘um but only as far as they’ll go. I knew a guy who fucked his horse. You know, like you’d fuck a woman, not like I described before (though I suppose you can fuck a woman like that too). This guy was rumored to have been with his horse, you know, lay with it. At the time I didn’t think it was true, I knew it weren’t right if it was true, but now…. I don’t fuck horses, especially not my own horse. All the time we spend together, I don’t know what we’d talk about after if I did fuck him. Not that horses talk but you talk to them. Three days lost in the Arizona Dessert and the sun as hot as it is can do things to a man. Make you think of things you wouldn’t normally. I still wouldn’t fuck a horse but now, I guess I understand a little better why that guy did… and even better why he shot that horse dead just afterwards, too.

Comments:
06/2/2005 Will Disney (3.5): nice save, guest author. i was worried there for a second. however, the bizarre back and forth of your narrator intrigued me, as well as your closer.
06/2/2005 Jawbreaker (4): I thought it was bizarre, yet enjoyable.
06/2/2005 Klause Muppet: I liked the ending too!
06/2/2005 The Rid (4): Funny. A little one-note, but a great ending.
06/2/2005 Mr. Pony (4.5): Agree with Disney on the narrator. I like this more the more I read it. I liked how the old cowboy let himself get bogged down with qualifications. A fine first shot, new author! I look forward to reading more!

06/2/2005 Klause Muppet: {wink}
06/2/2005 Litcube (4): Nicely done, Oarthour. I can appreciate the "I got this note off really quick and didn't have time to edit it (re-read it), and I was drunk and stoned" feel. Funny, though. Ping pong narration well done.
06/2/2005 Litcube: I don't smoke pot.
06/2/2005 Litcube: I'm just letting you know that because you might have thought that I did because of the thing I said just then.
06/2/2005 Litcube: Because I don't.
06/2/2005 Litcube: (smoke pot)

06/2/2005 Mr. Pony: This is clearly a coincidence, Author, but check this out! I guess day three is sort of the day when the magic happens!

06/2/2005 Harriet Tubman: not to mention
06/2/2005 Mr. Pony: I'll be damned, Harriet! qualcomm ripped me off!
06/2/2005 TheBuyer (5): You get an 5! Hooray!

06/2/2005 Benny Maniacs (3.5): I don't know that the punchline was a nice save. I liked the 'ums though. I guess I thought it was a bit of a one-trick pony.
06/2/2005 The Rid: Disney, do you only vote on first timers?
06/3/2005 John Slocum (4): I think this is more than one note. It's at least 2 notes. note 1: bestiality; note 2: treating women/horses badly, overworking them. I think there are more notes. TheRid: you have alot to answer for.
06/3/2005 The Rid: Slocum, I was referring to the "riding/fucking" joke. It basically just gets repeated with a tad more embellishment each time. I gave it the same vote as you, so what's the rumpus? One-note doesn't always = not good.
06/3/2005 John Slocum: Rumpus?
06/3/2005 Jon Matza: Rid/Slocum: I'm sorry to have to ask you two to take this argument to the rumpus room.
06/4/2005 John Slocum: Rumpus Room?
06/5/2005 TheBuyer: Rumpus room.
