Trunk

Now What?: Write what comes next.
"I found this in the trunk of your car. How could you?"
What was in the trunk of your car that caused so much drama?

We Have A Winner!!! 02/03/10
Mom asked me holding up the bag of jeans I'd cut into all shapes and sizes. "I thought your scissors phase was done with your teen years!! These are good pants, Autumn! You can't afford to go around cutting up your jeans!" I tried not to smile because she was really working herself into a tizzy over nothing and didn't realize it.
"If they don't fit you, you could have giving them away. Or sold them at least!"

Finally I couldn't help it anymore and I burst out laughing. "Mom, mom, I love you, but you've got this wrong" I said trying to calm myself down enough to explain. "These are the jeans that no longer fit the kids or me and were way too worn out to give away. I'm using them for quilting and crafting and a few other things." I told her softening my smile a bit. "These aren't the jeans I was telling you about on the phone, these were basically trash to begin with."

I reached into the trunk and pulled out a second bag. "These are the jeans that are in good condition. I was wondering if you would want them."
Winner: Autumn (@autumn_in_jeans)
Reason: Nothing like a good scolding from mom - especially when you can tell her she's wrong!

Yes, I know she said that you're my crutch,
And that you're lazy, dirty, and such,
But to tie her with rope
And trap her here? Nope,
I didn't know my mom bugged you that much.

A fry container from McDonald's. What can I say...nothing says stress-relief like grease-covered potato.

(true story)

I didn't mean to keep the space heater in my car's trunk for longer than I should admit, the storage room was locked when I was finished with it and I didn't want to leave it where anyone could grab it, so I left it in the safest place I could think of, then I kept forgetting to return it! I'M SORRY!!!

(sadly, that is based on something I really did)

I totally forgot! That's the ice cream cake for Jr.'s birthday that I picked up earlier. Sorry!
