An Italian-American living la dolce vita in the Deep South

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.

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. :) )

Wendy said...

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!

Kim H. said...

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! :)

Burgh Baby said...

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

Kellan said...

Oh NO! Cute cartoon - HA!

See you - Kellan

Laura said...

You're funny.

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)
