♕ |[ 96 ]| Something inspires the only cow of late to make no more of a wall than an open gate

[ VIDEO | Backdated to this afternoon ]

[The image is a bit dark and a little wobbly, but the focus is pretty obvious: an enormous bull, standing in the middle of a very narrow space lined with books. From offscreen, Neil narrates:]

I think he wandered in about an hour ago-- I heard the bell on the door and looked up and there he was.

[The bull turns his head towards the camera slowly, snorts, and goes back to nosing idly at the shelf.]

I'm calling him Ferdinand, maybe it'll be a good influence. But unless he gets tired and leaves, I'm not really sure what to do... I'd close up early but I don't want to leave him trapped here.

[Briefly, Neil turns the camera on himself, looking a bit perplexed.]

Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe we could... lure him out?

Hey could be worse. You could own a china shop.

I don't know if that's really their bag. I thought they were more into, like, grass and stuff.

I don't think paper really smells like grass all that much.
othersdie: are you exiled in those bottomless nights? (She never notices)

Maybe he'll disappear at midnight.
othersdie: we feel, in all of this, a certain lack (Concerned)

[personal profile] othersdie 2012-12-11 02:34 am (UTC)(link)
Can you get around it?
othersdie: are you exiled in those bottomless nights? (Confused)

[personal profile] othersdie 2012-12-11 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
Leave the door open? Run if it chases you?

At least you have something to read while you wait.
othersdie: happy in present good, pale from evil past (Almost a smile)

No, not by cows or bulls. Just by office hours.

[Because Captain America is worse at doing paperwork than Dean Winchester.]

Try not to get too attached.

[personal profile] othersdie 2012-12-13 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
If you say so. Just hope that Ferdinand doesn't follow you home.
othersdie: drowned men sank backwards into sleep (Vague)

[personal profile] othersdie 2012-12-14 04:34 am (UTC)(link)
You need a second exit.

[personal profile] othersdie 2012-12-15 08:18 pm (UTC)(link)
And there are worse people to be stuck with.

I don't think I'd be of much help.

Maybe later, when you don't have a bull for company.

I saw a cowboy herding some cattle earlier. Maybe you could get his help?
universaltranslator: Uhura looks a little annoyed (Annoyed: Now here's the thing)

It's worth a shot, at least. You're not really going to be able to get him out on your own.

Don't they stand around and chew cud all day?

I don't know. I've never spent much time around any animals.
