okay, so on Monday mornings (time-honored and traditional pastors' day off) I take a yoga class, in a farmhouse. It's actually one of the prettiest yoga studios i've been in -- curtained off from the rest of the building, and with enormous picture windows looking out on fields and hills.
Annnnnd before class the ladies were all chatting. So, I learned: a cow can get "beached" like a whale, if she falls upside down in a ditch. If she's very heavily pregnant she doesn't even need a ditch, she can get beached in a little hollow in the ground. And she'll die from her organs compressing her lungs if you don't hook a tractor to her back legs and pull her out.
THESE ARE IMPORTANT THINGS THEY DON'T TEACH YOU IN SEMINARY. Field ed in a field was the best idea ever.
