"Night of the Cow"

Private Collection of Kristy & Michael in San Diego

Alvina said the milk tasted "a little off" yesterday morning so Fred went down to the barn to see if Peggy Sue, their 4H blue ribbon Holstein, was feeling alright. He rested his hand on the door and listened... He heard snorting.

"Peggy Sue? That you?" he asked, looking over his shoulder back at the house for a moment.

Peggy Sue burst through the barn door, knocking Fred down. She looked at him, her eyes empty, raised one hoof, and extinguished him as though he were an old stogee.
