I drive a burgundy red Yukon XL. It's not the most unique vehicle in town by any means, but I do see a lot less "twins" of ourselves driving around than I did when we had a white suburban for our family vehicle. (I sure miss that suburban by the way, it seated 9! and was paid for! - can you ask for anything better? But then the engine went out....stink.)
So anyways, the other day I'm at Costco with Hailey and we come out of the store with a big cart of stuff and go over to our burgundy Yukon and open up the back to start unloading.
Weird. There's a blanket I don't recognize spread in the back with a couple toolboxes set on top.
"Why is this blanket in here?" Hailey asks.
"Ummm....maybe Dad put it in here since we just cleaned and vacuumed the car and he doesn't want to mess it up again", I reply. "But where did he find that blanket? I've never seen it before," I ponder out loud.
Then I start looking closer at the toolboxes and dig around in the small cardboard box full of miscellaneous hand tools that's back there and come to the conclusion that Joel must be bringing all this stuff to my parent's house this weekend. We're always doing some kind of project on their farm and toting tools back and forth.
Okey-dokey, better quit messing around and start unloading the groceries.
At this point, I'm turning to get the stuff out of the cart and something catches my eye. It's a person and they are sitting in the driver's seat watching me in the rear view mirror. Oh my. Suddenly everything starts to make sense. *Deep Blush* Luckily, he's a nice old gentleman and thought the whole scenario was quite entertaining. He was waiting for his wife and had seen our car drive into the parking lot earlier and thought, - my car has a twin. So when Hailey and I came out of Costco and started unloading into his car he knew why. I couldn't stop laughing and apologizing-- how many groceries would he have let me unload before he spoke up? Sheesh. How embarrassing. But I'm glad he got a good laugh out of it too.
