I tossed the keys at my friend Tab's(Hi Tab) step dad after a small exchange of who we mutually knew in town, and dashed out the door to join my family in the other car. For some reason when I hurriedly got in the car I just jumped into the back seat and was sitting directly behind Jamey. This is the part that the Heavenlies surely controlled because I can't recall ever not sitting in the other front seat on a car trip-long or short.
About halfway to hubby's office which was maybe a five minute drive total, a glop of something caught my gaze on the very crown of Jamey's head in front of me. I let my eyes focus in further and my brain considered I'd seen a huge hair gel accident sitting there. So quickly I gave him a mental "Bless his heart, he's no metrosexual" pity. But, sure as I got that thought going, my synapses fired again and I had recognition! B..I..R..D......P..U..C..K...Y... was the answer scrolling across my mind like one of those red dot running signs advertising specials in store windows. This definitely WAS special!
Immediately I voiced an urgent "OH, OH, OH!" and he braced for collision quickly looking around for trouble. I finally spit out "You have a... TWIST CONE sized dropping on the top of your head!!!" And then, of course, I immediately went into alternating shutters and giggles all at his expense. No one in my family ever finds these things as funny as I do, but Ratchet sitting next to me and Jamey, the victim, both tried to be amused while we found a napkin and I carefully pinched at the grey and white goo ball nestled around his hair shafts like a giant louse nit. "Fight the gag Shan. Fight the gag." I chanted to myself like the pro I am.
It's just a good thing I've been a mother for a while and have nasty glop grabbing skills, because the whole thing came out without a trace of evidence that anything had been there at all.
Together we quickly tried to imagine all of the embarrassing ways his poo head could have been discovered throughout the day and how many would have seen it before someone as obnoxious as his chortling wife would have been brave enough to tell him. He's already had to purposely slop water all over his shirt to match his pants after many bad hand washing splatters to the crotch at the low shallow sink in their new restrooms.
I wasn't there to help him with those. Nor was I there at the first day of his previous job in OKC when he showed up for a drug screening with matching trails of blood running down either side of his neck from his jawline after nervously nicking himself with the razor that morning. I'm sure they were amazed HE passed the test that day given we lived no where near Transylvania. And what non-needle pusher would be so out of touch with his own corporate look? Well, I know one. And he's a keeper. So I'm just glad I can be there to help with that extra set of eyes when I can. Today I could have used an extra pair of latex gloves as well.
Speaking of donning gloves...there's a nasty dog rump waiting for me in the other room. Tiki's blown a colon again. I really oughta just keep these things on.
