Take it away, Ladies!
Interviewer (I): Hi there! Today we have Chase and Rowan with us. Ladies, thank you for taking some time out of her very busy schedule to meet with me. I will try not to take up too much of your time.
Rowan (R): No problem. We are in between groups right now.
I: Would you like to explain the groups to everyone?
R: I think Chase would be better at that, since she is the one in charge.
Chase (C): Um, Hi. Yes, we run a therapeutic riding program for troubled youth. Generally, they are ones in the foster system, but not always. The program helps give them a sense of accomplishment and responsibility.
C: Yes. When they arrive here they are assigned a horse and they are responsible for that horse the entire time. Feeding, watering, all the grooming and pucky picking.
I: Interesting. Now, while I still have you. I heard that you two met in quite an interesting way. Something about a beat up old pick-up truck?
R: Oh, God! That pick-up truck. I still wonder if you would have made it here with that thing.
C: Well, I would have tried. But, in answer to your question. It was an interesting first meeting. That old truck meant a lot to me, but not as much as Smoothy here. It was the first vehicle I bought with my own money and it took both of us to a lot of shows when I was first starting out in the circuit. (Pause) It actually looked better under the hood, you know.
R: (Laughing) Oh! Now I want to try and get it back. I know you have a love for old jalopies.
C: It was worth it. I got more out of leaving that old truck behind then I ever expected.
I: Aww, that’s sweet.
R: Hey! You are so lucky we like you.
I: I should point out at this time that Rowan, Chase and I have been friends for a while now. I was fortunate enough to score an interview with Dee St. John, Rowan’s father, earlier this summer where he insisted on putting me on a horse’s back. That’s where I met Chase, since you can’t meet one without the other her on the Flying S. (Pauses) Now Rowan, I have it from an inside source that you prefer country music …
C: … and that you sing badly.
I: (coughs) …but no one seems to know what Chase listens to. Care to share, Chase?
R: You told her!
C: Not me. I bet it was Rob. But, you do sing all the time.
R: It would be like Rob to try and get his two cents in.
C: At least he didn’t tell her about how you decided to serenade me while we were driving cross-country.
R: No, but you just did!
I: Alright, ladies. Let’s get this interview back on track. How about I just get on to the next question?
I: You two have been quite the talk of the town, should I say…an item. Any word on what you two are planning next? Any wedding bells in the future?
R: Hey, that’s my line. (grins)
(PS: I'm all for the wedding bells...just saying.
