(Not so) Wordless Wednesday Western

(Que Western music)
Scene- S and I are on a subway. I am wearing a ten gallon hat.

S is wearing a 1.5 gallon hat (do they make those?)

S is asleep in her carrier I am chewing on a piece of straw and leaning against the subway pole with my hat pulled down low over my head.

A crow caws in the background

Enter- A large mariachi band. They are dressed in black and silver.
They have on spurs and large black cowboy hats.

Each band member holds an instrument.

They stop and stare at the baby.

I tip my hat up and stare at the marichi band. I rest my hand on my baby's head ready to....ummm... draw?

The mariachi band grabs their instruments.

Shot of baby.

Close up of me

Without a gun drawn or a horn tooted.

The mariachi band walks away.
Baby stays sleeping.
The fight has been won!

That is fabulous. I think you're in the wrong field--obviously a creative type.

I'm a mom, writer, educator and nap-taker, too.

I hate penny loafers. I like my men in high-tops.

That is the biggest thing I miss about living in NY--the subway entertainment! Very funny description.

How clever! Great WW! OK, not wordless, but mine wasn't either! But great, nonetheless.
