This was a conversation that took place over the weekend at my sister’s house.
Me: Hey, you’re looking for a pig?
My sister: *laughing* …yes!
Other sister: I think I know a place where they auction pigs.
Brother in law: Do they auction individual pigs or several pigs together?
Other sister: I don’t know.
Sister: He wants a baby pig.
Other brother in law: I’ll call the guy I know tomorrow. I’m pretty sure he knows where to buy a pig.
Everyone together: Okay.
I guess some things never change. We grew up around livestock all our lives, and even when we lived in the city my mom managed to raise a pig in our suburban neighborhood in north Houston.
