Did she say chuck wagon?

I went to visit my small town southern man (aka my grandpa) in his town of about 500 people this past weekend. I have compiled a "top ten" list in honor of this eventful visit but first, I have to tell you about the most white trash divorce dispute. Pardon me for my harsh words but after reading this blog you will most likely agree.

I decided while I was in town that I would shadow both of my uncles at their respective jobs. One uncle is a history teacher and my other uncle is a judge. Before being judge, he was the district attorney and would tell us crazy....I mean, crazyyyyy stories about what goes on in these small towns. Drug trafficking being one of the main problems that he deals with everyday. But on this particular Monday my uncle was listening to a couple's argument of who gets to keep what after the divorce settlement.

They start out by saying there is a dispute over a few pieces of property that they can't come to an agreement on.

1. land that has a rodeo arena on it
2. 5 bedroom 3 bath double wide
3. tractor from the 1960's

Who on earth owns a chuck wagon??? Needless to say I had to have some serious self control in that court room because I was so thrown off by the chuck wagon argument. After 30 minutes of back and forth bickering I leaned over to my dad and said, "I'm never getting married" to which he replied, "You can get married, just don't marry someone who owns a chuck wagon!"
