Traveling Needs New Shorty Shorts... (Updated AGAIN #3)

You guys are giving me a complex! You have been gone all week. But sure..... Traveling posts a blog about blowing himself up and everybody in blogland comes by! Bunch of RUBBERNECKERS!!!!!!!

(Written with a shaky hand on my phone)

Have you ever had anything happen to ya and it terrifies you(i.e. scares the living crap out of you?) so much so that you are pretty sure you need to go home and change your drawers/thong?

Well I just did! I was sitting here waiting for my kids school to let out. I was minding my own business in our lovely 97 degree heat they call fall and reading some of your blogs on my phone when out of nowhere...


All hell broke lose in my truck. My face was suddenly getting pelted by pieces of something, I couldn't hear... I was pretty darn sure that Armageddon had come and I had ended up on the wrong side. Was I shot? Had someone pushed a large bus onto the top of my truck? Had I been run over by a run away cruise ship?

When cognizant thought began to happen again it slowly dawned on me what had just happened. I purchased two new lighters yesterday and put them up on the dashboard tray. They were filled with lighter fluid and became hot from sitting in my truck all morning. I guess one blew up and the one sitting next to it went with it. Pieces of green plastic stuck in my new leather seat, green shrapnel pellets and shards of metal all over the place.

I'm heading home now. I need to change my shorty shorts.

*****Picture added when I got to Starbucks. Couldn't resist. Thanks Diggs for drawing the mafia connection for me. ******

UPDATE #2 Anyone notice who HASN'T been by lately? Wonder if she is lying low right now? See what she did at home tonight at [blog texasbelle_]

OMG! I'm sure it was scary when it happened, but to be honest, if I was there in a car beside you and I saw you ducking and weaving and flailing about in your truck and some unseen predator that doesn't exist. . . I'd (well first I'd be laughing so hard tears would be rolling down my cheeks) probably think you were some crazy guy that had just had a complete mental breakdown or something. I'd have to come over and see if you need help, or at least someone to call.
I don't know you, but I would have loved to have been close enough to see you fight with the invisible monster.
Too funny!

I was at a comedy club once and the guy standing next to me in the bar dropped his plastic lighter and it exploded. You should have seen people hitting the floor like there was some kind of drive-by shooting going on. It was pretty funny. All we found of the lighter was the top, no telling who had peices of plastic stuck in their legs that night.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

God, I hope your OK! I'd hate for you to have to reschedule any plans you made for the near future You never realize how hot it gets in those cars. But you would think they would make those things better.

How frightening. I was driving home from Phoenix the other day and about half way home, I was pretty tired, and a car pulled off a side street into the right lane. I was in the left lane, and I thought they were going to pull in front of me. I don't know what made me so jumpy about it, but it scared me to death. I jumped and tooted the horn and hyperventilated. OMG, I thought we were going to crash!

I felt like a fool after I realized what happened.

I hope you are okay, but I am grateful that it didn't happen when the kids were in the car.

dude good thing them lighters weren't in your shorty shorts

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

Human nature, love. You gotta laugh at someone else's misfortune. And this time, I happen to laugh at you. Maybe I should tell you something that will have you laughing at me...

*bites lip to keep from laughing too loudly* Ok, darling, I trust now that you have learned your lesson about carrying sealed flamable material containers in an uncooled place in your car in Texas during the summer... Just a thought.
