My Little Brony

Story Sent in by Jamie:

Harlan talked a lot about horses at dinner. I learned a lot about horses from him but I wasn't into horses and I wondered why he chatted about them so much. He was an upholsterer and didn't have much to do with horses in his day-to-day life from what I could tell.

He then started asking me questions about horses and I didn't know what to say. Nothing on my profile had indicated that I was into horses. When I asked him, "What's the deal with you and horses?" he replied, "You're a chick. I thought all chicks were into horses."

I was a little surprised by that and said, "I'm not."

He looked stunned. "Oh. Okay."

He clammed up completely for the rest of dinner, like all he had prepared for the date was an in-depth discussion of horses. I tried to engage him on his work, his family, and other aspects of his life but he wasn't really having it. Too bad.

    Everyone knows chicks like animals they can put in their purses.And ice cream,chocolate,and booze...and shoes.Tell us you like our shoes,chicks eat that stuff up.

    Hey,the post mentions horses so someone was bound to mention Chunky Horse.

    1. Wrong. I ride ON horses, not in them. Although I hear they're great for when you're about to freeze to death on a frozen planet. That is, if you can stand how much worse they smell on the inside than they do on the outside.


      Wait, do I have the wrong animal here?
