One hot flash away from spontaneous combustion
great story! they make those windows practically bullet proof don't they? lol
Funny but no so much for you at the time. I guess it's one of those things you can laugh about now, ha. I love true stories.
There have got to be some perks to being the daughter of a dictator, right? For your sake, I hope there are.Fine write JFC.
Such courage to break that window...don't think I could have done that!
I tried camping alone (one time) and locked the keys in the car. Had a very difficult time breaking the window in the middle of no where. Feel your pain.
Great story and I love Craptastic! :o)
Oh goodness! What a story, made evn more breath taking as it was a true one!
Now I know why my husband gave me one of those little tools for breaking windows! (Can't believe you had to resort to a baseball bat. You'd think the chick peas would have done the trick.)What a great story from the "adult child of a dictator." The "image of Mussolini's trains" is still in my brain.You are quite the writer, June.=)
I love this story, especially since it was true. I also love the word 'craptastic.'Happy weekend.xoRobyn
That is not fun It is my fear that I would lock keys in car
I knew it was a true story. You gotta love someone who goes from chick peas to a Louisville Slugger!You need a spring loaded center punch in your purse. Inexpensive and works like a charm. Not that I'd know from experience or anything..... MWAHAHAHAHA!
What a story! Locking your keys in the car is a nightmare that is not supposed to happen. What to do? And nor time to waste!Great choice for this prompt.I hate being picky, but isn't it so that we cannot change the wording of the prompt? You wrote "If only I had a hammer..." The prompt is simply "If I had a hammer..."Your story works either way.Best wishes,AnnaAnna's SC Week 23
Oh man, craptastic is RIGHT! Love that it happened (well not that it happened to you because I am sorry about that - )
You have a wealth of life experiences to use for these prompts, don't you!?Chick peas!
I know this really happened. It is too funny to be made up! Good work!
So sorry this is nonfiction, but it did give me a chuckle. Nicely done.
I would have called it a sick day for all!but then, i don't deal with a dictator mom.Great story, thanks for sharing
Very well told!that hammer
What a great story. Who'd of thunk that the chick peas wouldn't do the trick. So how is it that a tiny little pebble thrown by an 18 wheeler managed to crack my windshield LOL. Adult child of a dictator - I like that :) Kat
what a great and well written story. i love that it is TRUE!as usual, your talent shines through your words.........cj
Great story!! I don't think I would have been such a good daughter. LOL :)
JFC, I think I have some bad news for you.I think your Mom might have cheated. Cuz I'm pretty darned sure we had the exact same one.Great story. I have, rudely, on occasion wanted to throw more than a can of chick peas at my personal dictator!Clever story. Thank you for linking.
Thanks for stopping by. I love your comments...I get all warm inside just reading them!
