Oh, About the Van...

Something funny I meant to include in my last post...So, today is my first day of driving the van. I'm mentally training myself to look for silver instead of green when I come out of stores. So, Will and I are walking out of Walmart together and I opened the door of my new van and hopped inside. My first thought was, "Boy, I sure didn't smell cigarette smoke in here before!" As that thought went through my mind, I hear Will screeching, "Mom, that isn't our van!" Whoops! Fortunately, nobody else was in that van - I hope. Will kept saying, "I don't you, I don't know you..."

Then, my next stop was Hy-Vee. I got a few things and started pushing the cart out of the store. The next thing I hear is, "Ma'am, ma'am! You forgot your groceries!" Durned if I didn't forget the whole lot of them (doesn't that sound country? That just popped into my head. I'm reading a new book series and they talk like that in there). Good grief! I can't even blame it on heavy thinking - I don't remember what I was thinking about afternoon, but it was nothing big, I know that. Well, as Miss. Butterfield, one of my junior high teachers, used to tell me, "Girl, you'd lose your head if it wasn't screwed on!" Good thing I got those screws, because apparently, there are a few loose ones rattling up above!

  1. LOL, that is too funny!!!! I can't believe the van wasn't locked that you got into. But guess that is just CA were we lock and double lock everything. Thanks for the good laugh, I needed it.
