Friday night, Kim, Hannah and I are heading down the road to see Prince Caspian. We’re driving past a more rural part of town and we come up behind a black Mitsubishi Galant. So, as we’re going down the road, I see some brown hair out the right side of the window…like someone is sticking part of their hair out. No big deal….keep talking to Kim. A little later I notice that it looks like an animal in the back and I’m assuming it is one of those big dogs with the really long, flowing hair. A few seconds later, the animal sticks its head out a little more. I looked over at Kim and said, “I might be crazy, but I think there is a horse in the back of that car.” We’re trying to look and we’re both thinking there is no way. Well, the car turns off so that the window turns toward our car and sure enough, it was a horse. It stuck its head way out so that there was no mistaking it. These people were riding down the road with a miniature horse in the back of a four door sedan. I’m not kidding. That’s got sermon illustration written all over it.
Hannah asks, “Daddy, why would they do that?” My response, without skipping a beat: “Baby, because they’re redneck.” LOL oohhhh man. Only in South Carolina 🙂
