The Energetic Cow

By Katie Ryan

Margritte was a cow of energetic nature. She enjoyed late night dancing, Power Rangers video games, and snowboarding to the extreme. Margritte was a very lively cow.

One crisp early morning, Margritte took her snowboard and headed for the mountains. It was a fine spring day for snowboarding; the sun had risen in advance and the snow was still basically intact. She jumped on her board and went gliding down the mountain side. The cool air was pelting her face as she increasingly gathered speed. Before long, she reached the bottom of the mountain where most of the snow had disappeared. The board suddenly came to a halt in the mud while Margritte went flying off. She rolled to the edge of a cliff and immediately stood up. Because of her lively instincts and not knowing what else to do, Margritte jumped into practicing her kickboxing exercises. This disturbed the uneasy cliff edge, and it soon came crashing down with Margritte still aboard.

Margritte, the edge of the cliff, and a mixture of mud and melting snow, were tossed together and landed in a heap at the bottom of a ravine. The startled cow stood up shakily and tried to walk a few steps. Surprisingly, she had not suffered the slightest scratch. Although within a couple moments, Margritte tripped over an acorn and stubbed her toe. After being rushed to the hospital, she found out that she had fractured her toe.

The doctor told Margritte the entire ordeal could have been prevented if she had just settled down a little. Her eccentric activities could eventually cause more of these serious and life threatening injuries. Margritte was ill at ease when she heard this. It was dreadful to think that her wild days could ultimately come to an end. Now was the time to calm her senses.

Margritte set out to find different soothing remedies. She tried massage therapy, yoga, bath beads and salts, inscents, scented candles, and even certain types of music. To her disappointment, none of it seemed to work. Margritte took a final trip to the store. She strolled through the soap section and then took a look at the liquid soaps. There she found Johnson's Baby Shampoo with Lavender. Although a little hesitant, Margritte bought it. The next morning she took a long, relaxing bath with her new shampoo. To her amazement, it was soothing! Margritte had found her solution, and after many failures, the joy of finding the right product was splendid. It was an incredible, but calm, sensation.

"I feel so much better," said Margritte one morning as she went to get her vente sized mug of strong Starbuck's black caffeinated coffee and a day's supply of double shots.

Katie Ryan says, "I am certainly a cow fanatic. I love cows and am surrounded by them in Santa Ynez Valley, California. A few years ago, I started writing stories about bovines that have continuously amoosed my friends."
