Where There's A Need...

The other day on our way home from apple picking, Matt pulled the car into the parking lot of Blaine's Farm and Fleet.

Now, I was pretty sure we were good on all of our farming needs, so I wasn't quite sure why we need to go here. Here's how the conversation went;

Me: "What are we doing here?"

Matt: " I have to pick up some MonkeyButt."

Me and Emerson: "What?"

Matt: "I have to pick up some MonkeyButt."

Emerson: "They sell monkeys' butts here??!?!!?" "What do they do with the rest of the monkey?"

Vivi: "Heehee...monkeybutt."

Matt: "It's powder."

Me: "What kind of powder?"

Matt: "Is this the Spanish Inquisition?" "I just need some, is that ok?!!!"

Me: "Fine, you don't have to be rude."

Vivi: "Monkeybutt..heehee..monkeybutt..haha...MONNKKKEEYYBBUUTTT!!!!!"

Well, it turns out that because Matt job consists of a lot of outside work in the summer, a lot of crouching down in basements in the winter and a lot of driving around in a truck all year round, he had developed (for the lack of a better term) SwampAss.

He had heard a cure for this on the radio (I have no idea what station he's listening to) and wanted to try some. Hence the trip to Farm and Fleet. I guess farmers and fleeters have the same problem.

But now we can't get Vivi to stop saying Monkeybutt.

Which one, SwampAss or MonkeyButt. Sad to say, both are very real. (Although I never actually saw SwampAss.)

This takes me back about a year when I was talking with some friends and one mentioned MonkeyButt powder. The rest of us didn't believe her, so we looked it up, sure enough, it exists! I never Farmer's Feet carried it though!

LOL! Poor Matt.

I readily recall the "great" MonkeyButt discussion ChicagoLady refers to, LMAO. Is Fleet and Farm like an Agway store? I've been fortunate not to "require" any MonkeyButt.
