So I get down to the barns fully prepared to hop in one of the tractors with air conditioning on this 90 degree not a single cloud in the sky high pollen count afternoon and notice the bush hog is hooked up to the 4430 - one without a cab - so I text Chris this:
"seriously making me bush hog pasture on the 4430 w/no cab in 90 degrees - trying to remember I am not a wimp"
I stick my phone in my back pocket, put the tractor in gear and head toward the pasture - pretty soon I get a text - I don't recognize the number but I open the text to read:
"Dude...I don't know who this is but I'm sorry that ur hot and having to mow a pasture but thanks for the giggle. Ur not a wimp! drink your water!"
I look at the number again and realize that I have transposed (like that big word - I transposed not just switched) two numbers in Chris' phone number and have texted some random person so of course I immediately text back:
"wow I am so sorry obviously wrong number but thanks for the encouragement"
"if it is any consolation you were a lot more encouraging than my hubs who was supposed to get the text and would of either ignored it because he hates texting or would of said just get the job done"
To which my new friend responds with:
Hahaha! You poor thing. Maybe it will help you to know that the self-propel has been out on my mower for two seasons so I push mow 1/3 of an acre twice a week while my hubs works in an office! We are women. Hear us RAWR. Silly men...but seriously drink ur water. Goodluck!"
So I say "Thank You" to my random encouragement transposed phone number friend, those texts totally made my day - and you really should get your lawn mower fixed - I thought riding without a cab was bad at least I don't have to push mow!
