Wild horses

Whenever I hear that Rolling Stones song about how “wild, wild horses couldn’t drag me away,” I get really skeptical. Um, have you ever seen a wild horse? Wild horses drag things away—that’s what they were born for. Wild horses could drag away a school bus with its emergency break engaged and other, smaller wild horses pulling in the opposite direction. I know this song is metaphorical, but it’s still a preposterous declaration—especially when you consider that it’s being sung by Mick Jagger, who a domesticated goat could probably drag away. The only thing a wild horse can’t drag away is another wild horse of equal size. If you rigged up some rope between two wild horses and they took off in opposite directions, they would rip each other in half.

  1. I’m so glad you’re updating. It gives me something to do now that I only have one job. At least for the while. Miss you love 🙂

  2. I think I’ll have that lovely mental image of Mick Jagger being dragged around by a domesticated goat for a long time. Can you imagine if that was one of the featured events at their concerts? I mean, I know they get sold out these day, but man. I know I’d go, just to see that.
