Perfect! [Nov. 24th, 2010|02:54 pm]
terribleturnip
So, coming out of the grocery store while on break and two numbnuts have gotten into an accident right behind my car. And neither one will move until the police come. And I am stuck there until the person in the space ahead of me moves out. Fine. Fine. I run the groceries home so that the Captain can get started on a gigantic mess o'greens. And pies.

On my way back to work, traffic on Conn Ave stops dead. Accident ahead. Firetrucks, police and ambulances arrive, completely blocking the street in my direction. Finally, enough people do illegal u-turns that I can follow suit.

So, now my lunch has turned into a 2 hour lunch. Which looks awesome on a day when we get early dismissal.

But you know what would make today perfect? Not noticing the dead skunk in the road until....you run right over it, spraying the bottom of your car with decomposing skunk.

Perfect.

Have cider. Have a beer, or maybe a nice scotch. Or perhaps all of the above.... Oy....

heehee! Sorry to laugh! I'm in NC, trying to find a tiny bit of counter space in the House of Hoarding.

I'm so glad you weren't in either accident and you weren't the one who killed the skunk.

I know...but I wanted to kill the people who were in the accident and trust me, I was IN the skunk...

Thank you for perspective. Although I'll admit, a bottle of red wine helped the perspective go down...

I hear that if you soak the car in tomato juice it will get the smell out...or not.

The better advice is to add vodka to the tomato juice and sip until you can't smell it anymore.

Sometimes I think Thanksgiving Eve should be retitled "Idiot Drivers Day". People were just brainmush today.
