The 'sagacious' prompt word and the picture were selected by Grandma.
It's posted on her blog, Grandma's Goulash
Her Rules: Use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words. It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more.
Using the prompt word is not required but Grandma smiles bigger if we do.
*suddenly finds self taking a twisty, macabre path less taken, off of Memory Lane* Some years back, I was employed by my Knuckle Matt, who was a house/barn painter. Our worst mission (and nightmare!): painting a stock removal "factory"! I haven't eaten meat since. Not even chicken, because the ones cluck-loitering at this place seemed to actually enjoy wading through --Dare I say it? I'll spare you the details at least--> the most gruesome of the "goo"! YIKES! (Louder-->) YIKES!
Yep, to this day, no amount of "Would you like fries with that, ma'am?" will get me to eat a hamburger. Thank God, McDonalds now has oatmeal on the menu.
There is a meat plant about an hour away from here, and it always makes me bilious when we drive past it on the Trans-Canada Highway.
And I've driven past many feedlots, but not, as I recall, a stockyard. Sounds perfectly dreadful, to put it succinctly (which you did).

A bit creepy and a lot of fun, Jim.
