How hickass is too hickass?


We've been having a lot of rain here in Dallas lately. Not as much as in Gainesville, 70 miles north (see photo), but still, enough to turn a few pastures into sort-of rice paddies, or fishing grounds for egrets.

So the other day I was lazing about and realized that yet again, it was going to pour down. It was going to pour down cats and dogs, and my particular dogs had a blanket they had soiled and needed washin'. So I threw it outside in the backyard, into said rain.

It got washed by the good waters of God, purged of its doggy-stink sins.

Later, I washed it in the washing machine, but still, it wasn't AS dirty as it COULD have been, due to quick advantage taken of natural resources .

Assertion: I am hickass.
Question: Too hickass?

I'd say that the dog blanket is fine. If you had hung your washing on the line, thinking you were getting a two-fer, that might have been just a tad hickass. But if you didn't tell anyone...

I'd have done the same thing.

That doesn't really answer your question, does it?

Very true, Wiggy, but unfortunately the homeowner's association round here (which I wish wasn't) delineates hanging of the laundry as an overly hickass offense. Fortunately, they can't see blankets thrown down on patios.

No, but it's comforting nonetheless, Blogarita.

No. Never too much. Not you, OverThunk.

I reckon you're right, LBB.

Well, then, I guess they'd better never visit Bad Axe, Michigan.

That is superior, Wiggy! :)

I really don't know what's so horrible about hanging washing out... after all, it's a very green thing to do and THAT's all the rage. I guess I'll keep on walkin' round with this perpetual question mark over my head.

Also, Bad Axe is a cool name for a town.

I tend to think of "hickass" as having car parts strewn about your front lawn.
