MY INNER DORK SURFACES...AGAIN!
If there is a category and award for DORK of the DAY, I would like to nominate myself!
Picture this...Sicily 1935...Ooops, sorry I was having a Golden Girls moment.
I drive a silver Accord. It seems to be a pretty popular model around here. It is a 2001 sedan. Nothing fancy, but in pretty good shape. Especially the front end which was replaced last year after that old hussy T-Boned me.
So, tonight I go to the gas station to buy a pop and smokes. I was the second car on the right. The car to my left was parked in front of the Red Box, where there was a couple getting movies.
When I came out, I walked up to "my" car and noticed a nasty rusty scratch on the left front side. I walked up to it and felt it, rubbed it and proceeded to cuss out the body shop that had done the repairs. What did they use that made my car start to rust out?There was nothing that I hit and it just seemed odd. I then proceeded to open the driver's door and wondered, out loud, why "my" door wasn't locked. At that point, I'm sure you can guess what comes next.
As I am about to get into the car, the woman getting the movies hurries over and informs me that that is HER car! Yep. Of course I could only say..."yes, it is and that is my car", pointing to my car. I was sooooo embarrassed! Then the guy says he was just glad I didn't take his pizza!! I apologized and got into MY car (and the door was indeed locked) and listened the laughter resonating from my cars twin!
At least they laughed!! And after the red drained from my face, so did I!!
If I do indeed win the DotD Award, following is my acceptance speech!
I would like to thank my miniscule bladder for not allowing me to sleep thru the night, leaving me so tired I can't recognize my car!
I would like to thank my boss for letting me work overtime every night since last week that has left me so tired I can't recognize my car!
And I would like to thank all my friends and family that recognize my eccentricities (or insert the word dork-osity) and accept and love me because of, or in spite, of them!!
I sure hope I am in the right house and using my lap top!!!
