Wouldn’t it be great if those were one of those stories where I get to play the victim and there is this big stalker threatening to kidnap me? It would make for a fantastic story, but sadly that is not the case. I was threatened by D.
I forgot to mention in my previous posts that I am really bad driver. I mean really bad. Ok, not Rhonda bad, but bad. I have managed to drive myself 30 miles without knowing how I got from point A to point B. Seriously. It isn’t so much that I am not paying attention… well… maybe I’m not. I get distracted by random thoughts and just go through the motions of driving. I usually make it home safe. I haven’t been in an accident in a good number of years. (knocking vigorously on wood)
Well, this evening I was driving home from work and evidently I was not paying attention. I realized that the person in front of me was not moving. So I did an awesome defensive driving move and slammed on my brakes and swerved. I was slick. Shaking like hell, but slick.
I got home and told D about my little adventure. The conversation went something a little like this:
Elle: I just about wrecked my car tonight.
D: weren’t paying attention were you?
Elle: I have no idea what you are talking about.
D: If you wreck your car that is it. No more car. We can’t afford to buy you a new one.
Elle: So I should pay attention while I am driving?
D: Yeah, I’m thinking so.
Evidently I need to become a more alert driver.
In other news, I finally found the coveted cell phone ringtone. It took a little creative Googling to actually find it. It isn’t called the Hey Song. It is Rock and Roll part 2 by Gary Glitter. You have to know the one I am talking about. It is the song they play at every hockey rink after every home team goal. Now my phone plays it. I just wish more people would call me.
The finalists for the ringtone were:
Back in the USSR (Derek stole this one from me)
Knight Rider (keeping in that whole 80’s theme)
Ob-la-di, Ob-la da
The Mister Six song
Next I am on the hunt for the Hockey Night in Canada song.
