Hubby is a wonderful, sweet and all around great guy… but he can be clumsy. He can also manage to be clumsy within a car. His story is that some “jackass” decided to cut across a parking lot just as he was pulling out of a space He swerved to avoid the collision and hit a pickup truck. He re-enacted it for me with a variety of remote controls. Well, the pickup he hit on the actual tire so there was barely a mark (yahoo!) but his bumper “exploded”. I would say a quarter of it cracked and fell off.
In our household the tools and fixing of things is my domain (see clumsy reference above). He was very dubious of my suggestion that I could just glue and duct tape it back on, before I had even seen the damage.
So in fading light I reassembled the bumper with a little finesse, a few choice words and just enough duct tape to make it almost good as new. There is a portion of the wheel well that I could anchor it all against and it does feel pretty secure. Of course, we will keep an eye on it so it doesn’t become a safety hazard - “You are responsible!”
Perhaps this is what Averleigh was talking about a few weeks ago when she looked and me and declared “You are very possible mama!” I tried to figure out what she meant but to no avail. But it is one of my favourite of her one liners.
Now it’s time to go check out all my “very possible” friends linking up on Sally’s blog over here
ps - hubby consents to having his minor mistakes splashed across the blog.
