My husband Matt and our friend Jeff Pitcher are riding the famed Davis Double Century this Saturday! Wish them (and their sore booties) luck. It’s 200 miles of cycling through Davis, California in the blazing sun.
The ride happens to go past our friend Larry’s farm! So several friends and I will cheer him on while eating and drinking and playing with Larry’s new Tennessee fainting goat, Moe. This is a breed of goats that, when they get very excited, their muscles lock up and they keel over. This usually lasts about 10-15 seconds. (This condition is painless for the goat and very cute for the human.)
Of course, we will try to restrain ourselves from intentionally riling up the goat. But when Matt and the other riders go by, things could get pretty exciting…
