Oh yeah that!

Saturday evening I was preparing to make dinner for the kids and just didn't have the energy to make it happen.  I was exhausted and just wanted to snuggle my kids and call it a day.  Then I felt guilty.  I should be making healthy meals and not giving in to my exhaustion.  So I compromised.  I went to pick up the take out instead of having it delivered.  

As I was backing out of the garage I backed into the garage door.  The door wasn't all the way up and the back of the Yukon slammed into the door.  Scared the pee out of me.  Luckily for me, the car and the door there was no damage.  Or at least ... none I can find.  

I returned home with the Little Caesar's and greeted the kids in the kitchen.  My teenager looks at me and inquires about the car.  "So ... (pause for effect) How's the car?"  Of course I feign ignorance.  He replies ... "Mom my room is over the garage I heard you hit the door."

Flash forward to Sunday night.  The teenager sneaks a piece of crazy bread (left over from the Little Caesar's)  while I am finishing up making dinner.  He takes a bite and then asks me about it.  

HSM ... Why is this bread so good?  What kind of cheese is on this?
Me ... It's Parmesan cheese.
HSM ... Just Parmesan cheese?  Why is it so good?
Me ... They use pizza crust and then brush on butter and garlic.  Before they put it in the oven they dust it with Parmesan cheese.
HSM ... How do you know so much about it?
Me ... I used to work at Little Caesar's in high school.  I put a dent in the fender of the car and my Dad made me get a job to pay for the damage.  
HSM ... Your dad or mine.
Me ... Mine.  And I have never had an accident again.   
HSM ... You mean until last night when you hit the garage door.
Me ... Oh yeah that!!!

Smart kid ... makes me crazy!!!

  1. I'll be looking for you at the nearest fast food joint, flipping burgers to pay for the little car/garage door situation.
