Everyone knows a Horse Girl. She's the one who obsessed over horses since kindergarten and made sure all the way through high school to tie horses into every class project. Horse t-shirts, horse notebooks, horse figurines, you name it, if a horse was involved Horse Girl was too. Horse Girls are a unique breed who in my opinion make this world a more interesting place.
Every now and then I receive a voicemail message that makes my day. Yesterday was my birthday and Alisha won with the most pleasant message- though Dallin singing into the phone and running around the house while everyone chased him to keep up wasn't bad! Leeshy and I have for many years pondered over, researched and studied the characteristics of the Horse Girl; so in thinking like a true Horse Girl she left me this message:
"Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Matty, happy birthday to you. Yay. I hope you're doing something exciting and wonderful today like riding a horse, or reading a horse book, or renting a horse dvd like that one 'Horseland' I belive it was called, or taking pictures of horses, or going to a weird Chinese restaurant and eating horse, or just having an all around horsey happy birthday. Give me a call, buh-bye."
What a friend.
