So I go to check out a cow the other day that was taking too long to calve. I take my hoodie off and push my right sleeve back. My hand and arm goes in and the decision is made to help with cow out with a pull (the calf was trying to be born upside down).
I needed my left hand for support as I helped right the calf and begin to set the pulling chains.
As my left arm slides inside the momma cow, I suddenly realize what I'm doing and that perhaps the "water resistant" Fitbit wouldn't be warrantied if it quit due to submersion in amniotic fluid or misplaced in a uterus.
I frantically jerked my arm and fancy watch back to the surface with "Oh $#&@ Laura, take it off, TAKE IT OFF!"
I'm happy to say the calf arrived safe and sound. And the Fitbit survived the birth as well, in much the same shape as the calf. Warm, wet and slimy.
Do you think Fit Bit would appreciate and publish my review on the toughness of their product?
It's Nikky's fault I'm writing this. When I told her the story she said "you should totally put this in your blog. Pure Chilcotin humor right there." Hope we didn't make you lose your breakfast. :)
