Did I Mention That Last Night Was Curtis' Bachelor Party?

My head is killing me. (Don't Worry, Mom. I think it is just my allergies.)

I have to admit that I was kind of out of my element last night. Usually, I lead a simple and retiring life. Curtis' groomsmen, wild men from LA and San Diego, had an evening prepared that my simple, provincial life could not prepare me for.

Even though I would prefer to stay at home and work on my translation of the Divine Comedy into Haiku , I went b/c this was really about what Curtis wanted and not, as you probably assume, what I wanted.

I don't want to go into details, because I am already kind of embarrassed. And no, you don't have to write me emails saying that just because someone is getting married it is not acceptable to act however you want.

But, yes, as you might expect we went Cow Tipping.

You really shouldn’t judge me until you have given it a try. Typically, it takes three people to tip over a cow. So, not only are you getting a good workout but it builds teamwork.

The only disadvantage is that if you have allergies, like me, you may get a bit of a headache and itchy eyes. But it is worth it.

This has to be the only time that The Divine Comedy and Cow Tipping have been mentioned so closely to each other.

Only you Justin.

LOL.

O.K. Let's just pretend that Boccaccio never wrote an essay on Cow Tipping in the Paradiso

Easily done.

However, I think there's mass cow tipping in The Decameron.

Maybe your head hurts from all of the gay sex.

Maybe your haiku translation could be called "The Bovine Comedy."

why dont you call me back!

I'm hopelessly urban... Can someone explain just what exactly *is* cow-tipping? Can it be exactly what the name suggests?

PS Bovine Comedy... brilliant!

sharon: sadly, it is exactly what the name suggests. Cows, you see, sometimes sleep standing up.

Consider yourself now slightly more enlightened.

Hi PTB,

That is great! Who knew there were such sources of delight to be had from rural living? So is there a technique? Is it a push, or a gentle prod, or a whack? Is there a particular area of the anatomy you need to target? I am unspeakably tickled by this whole idea.

I find cow-tipping an ironical addition to wedding festivities. Must put in on the list of suggestions when Martha Stewart comes to me for ideas. I suspect there was more to the bachelor party than that, but I won't tell your mama.
