Mooned In The Moonlight…

Mooned In The Moonlight…

Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee….


It was almost 11:30 pm.  I’d just left the hospital to go home.  I had worked 2nd shift.  I registered, admitted patients in the Emergency Room.

I was passing the college close by… where the Confederate soldier monument dedicated to our Civil War dead… stood.  It was dimly lit in that area… I saw a tall, thin figure walk out in front of me.  It had been blocked by the monument.

I stopped… because everyone has to stop when college students are crossing in the walkway.  It sure was late for a college student to be crossing!

The tall, skinny guy crossed in front of me, never looking at me.  I watched him out of curiosity.  I couldn’t believe a student was crossing the street at that time of night.

He stopped as he stepped up on the sidewalk.  He never turned around to look at me.  What he did do… was to pull his pants down, bend over…. and moon me!  I couldn’t believe that skinny, white guy did that!  If only he could have seen what I saw… oh my!

It got away with me… I began talking aloud.  “I’ve been mooned… I’ve been mooned”!

I drove on through town, began the ride home on a country road.  I thought I saw something very small, white flash up in the distance.  At first, I didn’t pay it any mind… until I had an uneasy feeling.  I began to slow down.  Thank-God, I did.

Standing in the highway were cows… seven, eight cows!  They were milling about.  I sat there, trembling.  I was thinking how I’d just been mooned… and almost lost my life to a bunch of cows!

Instantly, the story of the cow jumping over the moon, came to mind.  This was the second time I’d ever been flashed, actually mooned in my life.  The first time by a big, hairy white guy… this time by a skinny, white dude.

Finally the cows moved enough so, I could pass through them.  I drove until I got to town where I lived… I stopped at the stop light at Main Street.  I waited… and while I waited, the most amazing thing happened… it felt like a dream.  I wasn’t sure I saw right!

Two cars came speeding by on Main Street, racing… as I sat at that stop light!  The thought in my mind at that very moment was… the whole damn world’s gone crazy!

I stopped by the police station to tell them about the cows.  I didn’t carry a cellphone at that time.  I told the man that I’d been mooned tonight, almost hit a herd of cows… and thank-God for the stoplight… because I’d been killed if I had driven across Main Street.

It’s amazing how things come in ‘threes’.  I always pay attention to the number ‘three’.

Below is a silly, little poem that came to mind, I wrote:

Mooned In The Moonlight…

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I was mooned in the moonlight

Mooned by a skinny, white guy

He walked across the street I traveled

Stopped, bent over… pulled his pants down

What I saw next… I won’t describe

You know it wasn’t much of anything

It was the idea that numbed my mind

The idea of … I’ve just been mooned!

Down the road I drove, saw a flash of white

I began to see shadows moving on the highway

Cows… lots of cows blocked my way

I sat there until they decided I could go

I got to the stoplight, stopped to wait

Stopped to wait… saved my life

As two cars came barreling by in a race

Twice that night I sat, trembled… thanked God to be alive

Three times in one night, amazing things happened

Two could have caused my death in a crash

Being mooned was just funny…

There was just so .. little to see

  1. Sounds like an eventful night!!! 🙂

    Glad you didn’t get hurt though – your Angel was watching over you and no mistake!!! 🙂

    Just caught your comment! 🙂

    We’re between storms at the moment with no wind or rain, but it is the calm before the proverbial storm – my weather station is still going nuts so I know more is coming!!! 😦

    Hope you have a great week my friend! 🙂

    Love and hugs to you, Skip and the pups!!! 🙂


      • We’ve been copping it with wind and rain this morning and Wednesday/Thursday we have another big storm headed our way.

        London is now in line for flooding, so the government has mobilised the armed forces to save everything upstream as a lot of expensive homes are under water and there’s still more heading their way from further up the river Thames while they are expecting a further inch of rain today and there’s nowhere for it to go. 😦

        To add to the fun we have even more predicted for the weekend.

        Know anyone with an Ark for sale??? 🙂

        Love and hugs sweetie! 🙂


      • Hi hun! 🙂

        It snowed earlier, but there’s more rain to come and the next 24 hours are going to be a test for the emergency services, so it’ll be a case of Man V. Nature.

        We haven’t seen weather this bad since 1768 and it’s breaking all records.

        I just pray nobody else dies… 😦

        Love and hugs!
