I herded goats with my car today. Which I think officially makes me awesome, because anyone can herd goats, but using a car? That takes skill. For work I sometimes get sent to Cayo to do errands, and I get to drive! (always enjoyable- I can't drive our truck, it's standard, so I don't ever get to drive). On the way back I stopped at home and encountered all our goats far from our house and heading towards the neighbor's corn field. I rolled down the window, waved, yelled and honked, which scared the goats into running back towards our house. Then I smugly drove behind them. This behavior might seem far from awesome-- perhaps even slightly scary-- to anyone who doesn't own goats. Trust me, the little punks deserve it. When I came out of my house they had all surrounded the car. I think they were debating whether to hot wire it or just carve their initials into the paint.
