I lied.

Remember when I hit that badger? (or whatever it was)

Remember when I said it was big, but not mess-up-your-car big?

Yeah. I totally lied.

Turns out that it actually WAS mess-up-your-car big. Or rather mess-up-MY-car big.



I noticed late last night that my parking light had been popped out and subsequently smashed, and the bottom of my bumper is cracked open. And there are some bits of fur stuck in it. Which is just disgusting.



Fucking badgers.

"I hope you have insurance," he said, trying not to sound like her mother.

I still think it was a racoon. Don't be dissin' the badgers.

Wow! All you need now is to flick a live cigarette on your seat, go the wrong way, get sideswiped by two giant rigs, and watch your car burn, thus forcing yourself to find quirky and wacky ways to get home to Chicago for Thanksgiving Day.

All kidding aside, that damage is massive, considering you never noticed it. You need to be an overly anal-retentive car maintainer like I am.

In any event, thanks for the first-ever glance at your car. I feel like I finally know you.

You did see the post about and pic of her car when she first bought it, Ian?

(That's why I'm president of the fan club.)

Okay, first of all, let's not start the fan club political wrangling.
And second, one should never fuck badgers, especially while driving. It's just asking for trouble.

No, SS, I didn't. I wasn't yet a member of the fan club when that particular purchase occurred.

Sorry Ian. Jen's right. You commented on the post about my new car. I would have thought something as monumental as seeing Flamingo's car for the first time would have stuck in your memory....but apparently not :(

Well, if SOMEONE hadn't delete her whole blog, I might have remembered!
