OK. So bear in mind that I live in the country . . . and there are all kinds of critters and varmints out here. And that's just exactly where I like 'em to stay - OUT here. Not IN here . . . as in my car!!! So as I'm toodlin' down the highway on my way to an appointment this afternoon . . . . . I suddenly hear a soft "bump" sound coming from a bag on the car's floor beside me. Huh?!?!?! Then I hear "rustle, rustle, rustle" . . . . and I'm thinkin' it is SOOOOO not cool to freak out at 65 MPH!!! I'm thinkin' snake??? Mouse??? Or - heaven forbid - RAT??? Actually mostly what I was thinkin' was "for heaven's sake DON'T RUN OFF THE ROAD!!!" And also "Please, whatever-you-are, don't bite me!!" It was an interesting trip to say the least! When I got to my destination - I veeeerrrrryyy carefully went through the umbrella and 3 bags that were sitting on the floor there . . . and little "Mystery Passenger" was nooooowhere to be found! Good? Maybe NOT so good!!
One appointment and several miles drive back home . . . and the little "Mystery Passenger" has still not been found . . . although I did hear loud rustling by my car door on the way home!!
Oh, the unexpected "joys" of country livin'!! (she says sarcastically!)
