Well this morning was going just fine, I was in bed sound asleep. I was dreading getting up because I knew as soon as I did a spaceship was going to come out of the middle of nowhere and smash straight into my head. For fuel this spaceship used margarittas and many, many bottles of corona. Don't ask how I know what it used for fuel, I just know! This spaceship only seems to find me about once every three or four years, I guess I'm pretty lucky.
Anyway, as I'm laying there in bed asleep or passed out, no reason to split hairs on this one, my dog goes nuts. I figured maybe an ant was walking across the yard or something and she wanted me to know about it. No such luck. I look out the window and see this in the ditch in my front yard.
I immediately threw on some clothes and headed out front. First thing I did was check on the driver, he seemed to be fine. Asked him a couple of basic questions, everything checked out. All he had was a nice gash above his right eye, could probably take a couple stitches but he chose not to. Next thing I did was started picking up car parts out of the road to avoid anyone else getting a flat or anything like that. After this the driver decided he wanted to try to move the car, luckily it is rear wheel drive. I was able to set on the back of the car which allowed it to get enough traction to come out of the ditch. He was then able to move the car into my driveway.
Next a couple of my neighbors walked over to check on the driver and her (my neighbors) fence. Unfortunately he took out a couple of fence posts. Next step he came into the house to clean himself up some. When he came in my wife imediately recognized him. Once she said his name I recognized him as well, he was a friend / ex-coworker of my wifes. Well now we chit chat a little and find out that the car isn't even his, it belongs to the lady he is house sitting for......oops. She is out of town and won't be back until Thursday. All I can say is that I'm glad I don't have to tell her.
Next step, time to start working on a fence. We had to get right on that so that the cattle wouldn't get out into the road. Have you ever tried to set poles and tighten up barbed wire when your head feels like it is going to explode? In case you haven't let me just say this.......I'm never getting in a spaceship that is fueled by margaritas and corona again!!!!
Anywho, we get the poles set, get the fence tightened and then get to come back in the house. He cleaned himself up a little more while I layed on the couch watching the room spin, not a good feeling. He attempted to call some of his friends to come get him but no luck. We finally decided we would just run him home, he only lives about 40 minutes away. Oh, for the record in this instance "we" actually means my wife. There is no way I would get into a car at this point. I may be an idiot but I'm not an idiot that would put other people's lifes at risk.
Well, thats the not so short version. Just thought I would share.
