A WOMP BAM BOOM!
Do you all remember Grease? It’s one of my favorite musicals! Drag racing, beauty school dropouts and oh, oh, those summer niii-yights.
Only it’s not summer here in Chicago, which leads me to my story and the main reason as to why what happened is not entirely my fault. If it were warmer outside, this never would have happened.
One of my favorite songs from Grease is “We Go Together”. Ramma lamma lamma ka dingity ding da dong.
It’s a great theme song for a lot of things like me and JW, peanut butter and jelly, and cars and garages. You just can’t think of one without the other.
Last night, I was trying to get the family together to go see Middle Daughter perform with the orchestra in her high school musical production of Disney’s “Beauty and The Beast”. It was fabulous, by the way.
Anyway, it was absolutely freezing outside. I went to get some gas for the car while everyone was still getting ready. Arriving home, I pulled up in my driveway, shivered and decided to leave the car running (which I never do!) while I retrieved my already late family from inside the house.
I stepped inside the door and as soon as I hollered “Let’s Go!”, there was a very loud, terrible crunching sound. One of those sounds that you just know can’t be anything good.
What the heck was that? I peeked outside the door to look.
And then I screamed. A WOMP BAM BOOM, indeed.
Imagine my horror as I saw my trusty minivan, with no driver, pushing forward trying to get into the garage. That dang car drove all the way up the driveway!
I understand,the car probably wanted to get warm, too, but you have to open the door before you go in the garage!
In my high heels, I darted across my ice covered driveway, hopped in, put it in reverse and then cried my eyes out when I saw the damage to my garage door.
It’s not good. Actually, it’s really bad and I’m sure it’s going to cost me a lot of ching ching, chingity ching shoo bop to fix. Whoa YEAH!
