My Mistake!

End of August 003

I do enjoy a good laugh, especially when it’s laughing at myself. Here is what happened last evening. Now that it’s daylight longer in the evening, I can drive to church for the 6 o’clock service and get home again before dark. I don’t drive after dark.

When I park, if it’s at all possible, I chose a place where I can pull forward when I leave, –no backing up. When I went to my little red car after service, there was another car parked right in front of my car. This puzzled me, because I was sure I had parked so that I could drive forward and there was this car right in front of me. Well, I can back up, but I’d rather not.

I opened the car door and started to put my purse into the car and suddenly realized, “This is not my car!” It was a small car, the same shade of red as mine, but it was not mine! My car was a couple of cars away, and indeed, it was parked so that I could drive forward, just as I had remembered.

I don’t know whose car I had mistaken for mine, but I had a good laugh at myself as I looked carefully at the car I had mistaken for mine. It was very similar to mine, but it was a Chevy, and my car is a Toyota Yaris.

It’s not the first time that I got into another car before I realized it wasn’t my car. Will I ever do it again? Most likely! If the car is small and red, I might think it belongs to me.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays.

I’m a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come.

I’ve been a pastor’s wife and a grade school teacher. Now I’m retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, –writing and art activities.

I’m very thankful for the blessings in life.

    Oh, Nancy, how many times have I done the same thing! It’s good to laugh at ourselves from time to time. Of course, some of the things I’ve done I haven’t shared with my girls ’cause I know they’d be rolling their eyes!
