EUGENE, Ore. (BN) — A juvenile goat’s indiscretion led to a woman being unable to go into work, Brimborion News reported on Friday. Lana Murphy, 25, woke up to find her overalls, which had been left outside all night on a back patio chair, covered in vomit. All signs pointed to it being from her pet goat.
“I think he got into the coffee beans again,” Murphy said. “Or maybe the beeswax. There was everything you could imagine in it. Yarn, compost, burlap. And goats are known for eating everything imaginable, so.”
Murphy, who works at a hydroponic farm a few miles outside Eugene, and also volunteers at the local farmers’ market, said she can’t do her job if she’s not wearing overalls. “They’re so versatile. I wear them everywhere. I’ve had the same pair for 5 years and they only need to be hosed off about once every few months. My friend has a washboard and wringer, so a couple times a year I’ll take them over when I really want to get them clean. But she’s working today, so.”
Asked why it was necessary to take the day off of work because of the incident, Murphy replied, “It was my only pair of overalls. I mean, what am I going to do, go to work dressed in yoga pants, and be ogled by all the dudes? Or, like, jeans and a T-shirt? Like it was casual dress day at the office or something? I don’t work at the Gap, sorry.”
