I grow up with the saying " I feel like I have been hit by a Mac truck." It was said when you are sick and full run down and all over yucky. No not knowing the brands of trucks I would say "I feel like I have been hit by a semi." Well this morning I had a new thought, one that made me relise that in the few months that we have been here the country girl is coming out. "I feel like I was hit by a tractor." When I relised that it was no longer a semi but now a tractor I knew I no longer had a strong hold on my city roots. I think I will be in truble if I start saying "I feel like I was hit by a john deer 5025" ( a modle of tractor)
So I ask my big city family and friends to watch me carfully and if I start to say "yu'a"l or "diggity", you envite me to see the big lights there, get me conectted with my cement roots.
Untill then I will try to keep a blanace on this here post fence, one foot in the golden weat fildes and one on the cold side walk.
