K scroll down and leave some birthday love for me and then come back....
Now you get to read my hubby's most embarrassing moment...Don't you Hate it when....
Here we go.
I had been seeing/dating Chris for a couple weeks. (Chris and I went to the same schools since elementary. He was two years younger than me. (Which means he was in the same grade as my sister, which in turn means, I didn't give him the time of day.)) So my mom knew who he was but not very well. Just of him. My dad was just meeting him for the first time.
Chris was really nervous about this meeting. (Aren't we all, meeting the parents?) We had already started talking about marriage and pretty much knew that these people were going to be his law-in's.
We were running late for dinner. I knew the roads like the back of my hand. I knew where to brake, speed up and run stop signs. (Not that I would ever do that, Connor. Your mom and dad obey all road signs!)
Anyway we have dinner and meet the parents. Have a few laughs. All is good. Chris had to leave to go to work. He was running a little behind because I think he forgot his work shirt or something. Anyway he leaves and all things are great!
About ten minutes later I get a phone call on my cell.
"Uhhh, do you think you could drive down your road and help me? Maybe bring your dad."
"Why? Are you okay? What happened?"
"I'm off the road. Can you just come here?"
So I jump in my car and go down the road. (We lived on private road with just trees and bushes along the edge.)
I turn the corner and Chris' silver car is in the MIDDLE of a little pond, off the side of the road. (If you know the road, you would know to slow down around that corner...Chris didn't.)
Pretty much he flew in the air off the corner, into the pond/swamp. His car was in the muck up to his bumpers and was going into his floor!!
I just bust out laughing. (I know Best Girlfriend Award.) There's no way I can help him. I have to call my dad. He has a tractor and gloves and knowledge.
Keep in mind, Chris JUST met my parents. So much for the good impression!!
My parents come down and pull his car out of the swamp with our tractor. My dad has to weighed into the water/muck to get chains around Chris' frame of his car. All the while, mom and I are trying not to cry from laughing so hard.
Finally it's out on the road, full of gross water and he has to go deliver pizzas. Needless to say, he called in and we went back to the house and had hot chocolate and shared car crash stories!
The next day Chris and I washed his car and got yelled at by the car wash people for clogging their drains with our gross water!!
Don't you hate it when that happens......????
Yeah Chris does too.
He he he!
