MY CAR IS POSSESSED
Honda HRV (Harvey) is possessed! Not
repossessed, it is paid for, but possessed by some unknown force.
How is it
possessed? I have no idea. I am the only owner, so it is not as if some
previous Nere-do-well left it with some bad karma, or someone died a horrible
death and the soul has not left Harvey.
possessed it is.
Last month I
left for a 4-mile drive to out local recycle center, Fort Grumpy. (Yes, Mrs. C thinks I should get a job there too) I recycle once a week, carefully separating
glass, plastic and cans, cardboard boxes, and paper into separate containers. I’m pretty sure all this stuff ends up in the
same land fill (several
engineering experts in the field have confirmed this) but I still feel like I am doing
something good for the environment once a week.
On the way to Ft. G. I pulled out my driver’s license and stuck it up under my sun visor.
Our Ft. G. Grumps demand proof of residency to
drop off recyclables, they are very thorough in ensuring some non-town resident
cannot drop their stuff off on our center, so proof of residency is
demanded. I put it in my visor ahead of
time to be “soup-nazi” prepared for the Grumps…they will yell!
Half way to
the center I glanced up at my visor and the license was not there.
What the Hell!
over and looked on the floor, the seats and even under the front seats. Nothing!
How does a plastic license slip out of the visor and disappear without
my even noticing?
I looked all
over and nothing. I drove back home for
a more thorough search. After tearing
everything in the front seat apart without finding the license I turned to the
back…as if a piece of plastic could slip out of a visor, fly out over the front
seat and land on the floor in the back without my noticing a thing.
I found it
on the floor almost under the back seat and slightly buried under assorted
trash. Impossible, and yet there it was.
Still hard to find...partially buried
Today I left
for Fort Grumpy and once again stuck my ID firmly in the visor. Once again half way to the center I looked up
at the visor and …WTF! Gone.
over to check quickly and once again nothing.
I Drove home and checked all through the front driver and passenger side
and again nothing. I checked the back
seats and there was the license. Directly
any moving of the visor, without hitting any bumps, the license somehow flew
out of the visor, over my shoulder, and landed behind the driver seat and I did not feel or
see a thing.
The car is
possessed I tell you!
