Temporary ADD.

Written by sally @ 6:26 pm — Section: sally

Last night Larry and I went to eat sushi, which was delicious and also the first biggish meal I have had since my gluttonous trip to New Orleans, and afterwards we decided to go to Target (it’s in the same shopping center). I told Larry I’d walk if he moved the car.

So I stopped in a couple of dumb stores on the way, and when I came out of one I sort of noticed a giant 18-wheeler parked in the middle of the road and people gathered around pointing but didn’t pay much attention. Then my phone rang.

Larry: OH MY GOD THAT 18-WHEELER JUST TOTALLY RAN OVER A CAR!
Sally: What?
Larry: IT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME AND JUST COMPLETELY TORE OFF THE CAR’S BUMPER!
Sally: Huh.
Larry: Wait — did you not see it?
Sally: No.
Larry: But you were right there!
Sally: Oh.

And then we went into Target, we had this conversation:

Larry: Oh, I’m gonna be sick.
Sally: What’s wrong?
Larry: I was talking about that fat man over there eating nachos.
Sally: What fat man?
Larry: He had nacho sauce all over his — oh, not again.

I’m glad that there was a very slim chance of a piano falling out of a window onto my head last night.

    I totally saw the accident coming. I watched in awe as the 18-wheeler trailer ran over the front of the car. Sally was, no lie, 20 feet from the accident.

    It wasn’t quite as bad as the accident I saw where a person crossing the street was hit by a dump truck running a red light. I really should have been a lawyer. I would have some really go cases.

    So what kind of sushi did y’all eat?
