So I am trying to make a left turn and I have the right of way...and another car that is at the stop sign and had been waiting before I got there THINKS it is a 4 way stop so he apparently THINKS it is his turn before mine. Nope. He even honked at me cuz I was turning and trying to get past him on a one lane road.
Driving home after work today, on the freeway, I escaped running over a tire and an orange work cone.
Yep- first a flat bed trailer- attached to a truck- was driving along- one car ahead of me. All of a sudden the car in front of me had to slow and swerve and I figured out why and quite quickly...I too had to slow and swerve. Gratefully the tire was just lying flat on the freeway rather than hurtling towards me or anyone else. It must have fallen out of that flat bed trailer because the truck and trailer quickly pulled over. I have no idea how they were going to get out into the middle lane of traffic to retrieve that tire! And then a mile or two further, an orange work cone was lying in my lane so again I had to swerve a little.
Didn't realize I had to drive through an obstacle course on the way home. Oh, the joy of commuting!
I got home safe and in one piece of which I am VERY grateful. Be safe out there everyone!
So...my 13 year old niece is deathly afraid of spiders. I am not a fan either but if they are not of mammoth proportions, I have no fear of ending their lives by a quick squish from my shoe or a tissue.
So...last night we saw a spider that was on my mom's window sill...outside. Which I know that as I tell you this story that you will not be too happy with me because Mr. Spider was just minding his own business. But he was a mondo huge spider. Gave me a bit of a chill I will admit. Onto the story...
So...I found the spider spray and Kiley and I went outside to spray this spider's life out of him. Mean, I know.
I sprayed him. He cowered. I thought I had really done the job. But when I stopped spraying...he kept crawling along. So I sprayed him again. Cower. And then he moved along again. What is he? Mighty Spider? So again I sprayed him. Cower. And then finally he got into a crack in the ground.
I assured Kiley that he has gone into a dark corner to die.
We went into the house. Hoping that the spray had done the job.
Maybe 3 seconds later, the doorbell rang. I yelled at Kiley,"Hey, Kiley, the spider is at the door for you." (Now that was funny!!! Though I do have to say that kind of unnerved me that the doorbell rang just after the spraying fest on Mighty Spider.) By the way- it was the pizza delivery guy for my sis in law.
