OOPSY-DAISY!

Dear Joey,

You know how sometimes you leave your car parked in the garage when your carpool picks you up at the house?

Well, this morning I forgot.

I got into the van, swung wide as I backed out of the garage, and rubbed my front bumper all along the driver side of your car.

You know how you liked that chicken cacciatore recipe I used a few months ago?

Well, that's what we're having for dinner tonight.

Bacioni,
Bia

Ooooh, I'm so sorry. The insurance companies don't like that very well. I know.

Therese said...

I've done that!

Cheryl Lage said...

I know I shouldn't be giggling at the mishap but you've written it so charmingly, I cannot help it!

(Chicken Cacciatore works forgiveness wonders.... ;) )

Nancy said...

oooh - how'd he take it? Did the cacciatore work?? (And like Cheryl, I'm really trying very hard to not laugh...but you've written very witty-like. :) )

You sound much too pleasant for what has happened (especially when male family members are involved - of course, they may not be anything like my male family members). I backed right into my brother's church van once. I will never be able to compete with his wife's cooking, so I didn't even try. I felt horrible!

Oh Bia you are too funny! If you hit my car and brought me chicken cacciatore, I'd definitely forgive you! :)

And if you accidentally ever hit my mailbox, you can bring me some eggplant parmesan! :)

Whoops! I hope the chicken cacciatore took the sting away!

Oh NO! Cute cartoon - HA!

See you - Kellan

Must be the week for this. I hit the side of the garage with my mirror and scratched the van and the garage wall. Thankfully a few years ago dh did the same thing and took the mirror off and damaged the wood. Since his was worse, I got off pretty easy. This is good because I'm pretty sure my chicken cacciatore would have only made the situation worse :)

Lisa said...

Oh, gee. I did the same thing a while back, hitting my husband's truck. But his truck didn't even have a nick, while my back end was crunched in like it was made of tin foil. Sheesh. Do you suppose I should have made myself my own favorite meal for that one? &;o)
