You and Tequila Make Me Crazy

The feeling of your braid keeping rhythm with you loping your horse

The sound of the trailer door closing for the first time in the morning

The relief of getting the last of the kids in the truck, still clean, on the way to a rodeo

The leathery coldness that envelopes your foot when pull your boots on in the morning

The feeling as you reach for the volume when Kenny Chesney and Grace Potter start singing You and Tequila

The feeling when you pull on your tight work jeans, fresh from the wash, and they’re just a bit looser than the last time you wore them

The feeling of branding dust running off your face in the shower at the end of the day

Realizing that your name sounds the most beautiful when he says it

The feeling when you rush in for the heel shot your boss missed and some of the older guys holler when you get two

The first swipe of a new tube of chapstick

The feeling in the morning when it’s time to ride THAT horse in your string

The feeling of walking through the door, pulling off the shit kickers and putting your slippers on

The feeling when your two year old fair prospect stops consistently on her hind end

The feeling when you realize you are blessed to live the life you lead
