Argyle, Texas is a spot in the road in North Texas with a population of about 3,200 brave souls.
And one of them slept in what the police called “a large pool of blood” and lived to tell about it.
At first, the 53-year-old woman told police that she had had been cleaning her .44-caliber Ruger Vaquero when she shot herself in the hand and shoulder.
The nervous boyfriend, who smelled of alcohol, told police the same story. But he later admitted that he had been responsible for the shooting.
The man said that the couple had been practicing “quick draws” on each other during a night of drinking. He insisted that he was not aware that the gun was loaded.
Now, when you’re drunk enough to go to sleep in a large pool of blood, odds are fairly decent that you’re not gonna be sober enough to come up with a good story. And to stick to it.
We call that so drunk that you had to hold on to the grass to lean against the ground. And if your idea of romantic is to shoot your woman and have her take blame for it, then hunka hunka burnin’ love, Honey.
Thanks to Hilary for the heads up.
