“Ol’ McDonald had a farm…” How many times have we heard that old rhyme! However, have we ever felt a familiar tingle when we hear the part “With a bow wow here….” or “With a baaa baaa here….”?
As a kindergarten student, I used to sing it for the sake of it, but that changed since my visit to a farm two years ago. It was a proper English farm where this incident took place.
The farm was full of goats which apparently liked to lick the exposed parts of our bodies. One of ’em came up to me and started licking my fingers and then proceeded up. I felt it was cute; so, I sat down.
Then, that goat completely surprised me by planting one hoof on my stomach, as a result of which I fell on the ground. It wouldn’t get off me and started licking my face. The goat stood victoriously over me. Singing “Ol’ McDonald” is not the same any more. 😀
