Okay, so this one time I was cleaning this horse's sheath at an old ranch I used to ride at. I was really getting into it, gettin that sucker SQUEAKY CLEAN! It was SO dirty. And I had my hand up his sheath and I was singing "We're gonna get it CLEEEAAAN squeeaky squeeeaky CLEEEEAAAAAN!!!!" because I'm weird and I sing to my horses... (I am NOT a perverted person, I SWEAR!!!! I'm just sorta goofy) And I hear this noise behind me and I stop and turn around. Well, this guy was standing behind me with his wife and son and his eyes were HUGE O_O. His mouth was gaping. It turned out the owner was having an after church party and he was trying to find the house. I didn't even bother explaining. I just pointed in the direction and tried to hide my shame. LOL.

So uh, yeah just thought I'd share to clarify why I like cleaning sheaths. Y'all can sleep in peace tonight, resting assured in the story I just told you. -bows- And to all a goodnight!!
