Calamity Car Wash

“My brother was a lifeguard in a carwash.” – Henny Youngman

True confession …. I never take my car to the car wash. It looks like something from the bottom of the black lagoon but, hey, I have other things to wash – dishes, laundry, floors ….. CHILDREN. And I figure it’ll get washed when it rains. Well, except that it doesn’t rain much in Texas. My husband calls it the Dirt Mobile. I have a name for him, too, but I’ll refrain.

A few weeks ago I lost my mind and decided to take it to the car wash. One opened a few miles from our house so I decided to give it a try. Distracted by a phone call, I didn’t exactly read all the instructions prior to entering. I do remember something about not braking while going through the wash.  I was in a hurry so NO PROBLEM. They didn’t have to worry about ME braking!

The attendant guided my wheels onto the track and off I went. Damn! I was FLYING through that wash. I decided I would definitely come back to this wash as it was FAST! Then there was a knock on my window. I screamed and jumped - which caused me to hit my horn. It was a very pissed attendant. He had chased me into the car wash to tell me that I failed to put my car in neutral (OOPS .… it was still in drive). Guess that explained why I was flying through! He shut off the car wash and told me to drive out and get back in line as I would have to go through again (the right way). I drove out and saw the line of cars waiting their turn. There was NO WAY I was getting back in line. I left the wash with soapy bubbles trailing behind me.

The next time you and your girlfriends’ get together to talk about the dirt in your day, make these fabulous no bake cookies! They are simple to make and so delicious!
