I was running a little late getting Lauren to today's game – I do have a life. Being a full time mother, with a full time job, and going to school full time at night is extremely hard. She should understand what I go through everyday to provide her with the lifestyle we have. 15 minutes will not kill her.

But today of all days there was a freakin car wash going on behind the high school. The traffic jam went all the way out onto West Main Road. I read about this in a magazine or watched on discovery, I’m not sure which, but what I do know is traffic is like a slinky (the toy).

Anyway this giganto SUV (way to big for a family person, never mind just one person) cut in front of me, missing my Suburban by inches. I was telling this to my friend as it happened. I am surprised that near miss didn’t make me drop my cel. By the way AT&T has the best deal going. You can talk to anyone.

What the F was Father Mathers thinking? Jesus, does he think the extra 10 seconds he saved by almost killing me was going to win the game for his new team? He needs to pray more.

It gets better

When I finally got behind the high school to the parking lot, all of a sudden I couldn’t see anything. My car started shaking and people were punching on my widows. I told Jeannette I had to go and I slowly opened up my door to see what was happening. The softball team captain Jessica walked over and asked for $15.

That’s right, $15 and she wasn’t kidding. Just to wave some soapy towels around, pretending to wash my car? Who were they kidding? I told them I only had a credit and no cash. They told me they couldn’t rinse my car off then. Touché Jessica, Touché…

After I magically found $15 dollars in my purse we got to the game.

Wonder if my son knows when the boy’s football team is doing a car wash? I hope it hot that day!
