If there was any question about whether I had drunk the pastoralism kool-aid, my having digested Brad Kessler's "Goat Song" in less than twenty-four hours should prove it.

While on the F train yesterday:

Lou: I want a goat.

Jeremy: No.

Lou: I want a pair of goats so they don't get lonely.

Jeremy: No.

Lou: You can feed six goats on $745 dollars a year.

Jeremy: Finish a book and then we can talk about it.

Lou: In five years? Then we can have a farm in commuting distance to the city and goats and one horse.

Jeremy: Maybe.

You heard it here first. In five years, I will have a bucolic existence replete with livestock. Emily Giardina: our dreams are coming true.
