This morning I went to the car wash and used the big industrial vacuum. Some of you may know I’m rather frightened by them*, but I didn’t really have a choice. I’m a car slob. Receipts from the drive-thru. Dunkin Donuts straw wrappers. Empty water bottles. Old grocery lists. You name it, it’s on the floor of my car. I had to clean it out and then I tried using my little hand-held vacuum.
It was the petrified pink Peeps that forced me to risk my life by using the car wash vacuum. Yes, I know they only sell Peeps during the Easter season. Yes, I know it’s September. That sparkly sugar stuff they’re coated in? A little like glitter once it’s ground into the carpet.
I was rewarded for my bravery in the face of being serial killer bait, however, by having a NH State Trooper go roaring past. As you may know, I happen to think the Dodge Charger in the NH State Police livery is sex on wheels, so not a bad way to start my day.
How does your vehicle fare? Do you keep it tidy or are you a car slob, too? (Somebody else has to be a car slob. Can’t just be me.)
