Adventures in driving or laundry or whatever

Today I drove Mooon Yooonit more than a few feet for the first time and I debated about whether to tell the GG about the adventure I had with it. Nooooo I did not crash it or lose the fob (fob fob fob).

I drove Mooon Yooonit into town to do laundry. The washing part of laundry got done and I put everything into dryers except for my Keen sandals and two long skirts because I don’t put those in dryers. I took those out to Mooon Yooonit. I beeped the car unlocked and tried to open the rear passenger side door. It didn’t open “out” like I expected it to, instead it started slowly sliding. Hmmm… Do we have a slider on this side of our new vee-hickle? I don’t remember anything about that…

I put my skirts and shoes in the car and went back in the laundromat. A few minutes later, some lovely ladies came in carrying my skirts and shoes and asking if they were mine! I was very confused until they said I had put them in THEIR CAR! Jeebus! How the heck did I do that? In fact, I think it was because I went out a different door (of the laundromat) than usual and approached the first gray SUV-like entity I saw.

I explained that I was driving a new car for the first time ever and was totally unfamiliar with it and we all had a good laugh.

The conversation went on for a bit. They love to vacation here and I mentioned that I had grown up here and still owned a summer cabin in the area. At that another person got interested in the conversation. I refrained from mentioning my name or saying anything much about my family. Certain people (he knows who he is) have a tendency to try to name-drop my family name and it drives me nuts. We were once a rather prominent family in the area and while there are a few folks around who still remember the name, I think most people don’t and I prefer to keep my identity private for the most part. Especially when I have just done something as stoopid as putting my laundry in someone else’s car! 🐽

In the end, I wished all my new friends a good day and left – with MY laundry in MY car!

    Funny! There are more blue Subaru Foresters around these days, and I have to make sure it’s my license plates and license plate cover before I try to hop in. 🙂
