Oh... Farm BILL...

So yesterday I was coming from my therapy session.  Most of my session revolved around my hearing loss and my frustrating and increasing brain fog.  I get in the car and as it warms for a bit I turn the radio on.  As usual the music is completely hideous, so I turn it to NPR.  I catch a few sentences into the beginning of the topic.  Curious, they are talking about Farmville.  Now and again NPR will cover stories that are a bit tongue and cheek also, Farmville is a very popular and profitable game on Facebook, so why not, I think.  I don't play it very often now, but I am familiar with it so I continue to listen.  After about 3-5 minutes they continue to talk about how Farmville might be raising the milk prices to $7.00 per gallon but not until after the first of the year.  There is no need to start stock piling milk now.  Odd, I think, I wouldn't stock pile milk, on a game really, but it might be a good strategy.  Then they started to talk about Congress.  Hmm.  Congress?  Maybe they might not be talking about Farmville.  But I know that is what they said.  I will try and listen closer. Nope, Farmville for sure!  Driving, listening. and then, "Here's what the speaker of the house Bill Boehner had to say about the Farmville"!!  ........ Silence in my brain.   Brain processing.....  Oh.... Farm BILL.  They are talking about the Farm Bill! Ok, that makes more sense.
