Warning - potential danger of horse hair!!

This is a public service announcement - The national institute of health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in horse hair, this substance is called 'Amobacter Equi', females are most at risk and has been linked with the following symptoms: reluctance to cook, clean or do housework, reluctance to wear makeup, nice clothes or heels. Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs until "baby has new boots, pad, blanket, tack, grain, hay and supplements"

'Amobacter Equi' usually results in long hours away from home and exhaustion which may lead to lack of physical contacts with other humans (especially husbands) 'Amobacter Equi' is thought to be addictive, driving the need for herd mentality, or like the potato chip commercial "you cant just have one"

BEWARE - If you come into contact with a female human infected by this substance, prepare to talk about horses for hours!!

GENERAL WARNING - Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sence!!

Aww now I know what I have got. Looks like it's incurable too.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Well, now I can tell my ex-husband that it's not my fault! I have an incurable disease that severely diminishes my bank account, my time, and my need for human contact. Oh crap.... Guess he should have understood better when I couldn't sell the horses... Is there AA for this? I'd like to know so I can avoid it

I was going to clean the house today, but I think I'm coming down with a case of AE.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
