A Little Loopy

Here is the downside to dieting (beyond the obvious):

I’m a little bit loopy. Today, as I was backing out of the driveway to go to the grocery store with The Squad and my Mom, I hit my Mom’s car.

Everything is fine. Nothing happened to either car, but it scared the crap out of me. What kind of person backs up without looking behind them? I guess someone who isn’t operating on enough calories. I’m glad I didn’t hit any of my neighbor’s dogs. I’m glad no one was hurt.

The funny part is that I take my Mom grocery shopping with us at least once a week. It’s just a lot easier to shop with two adults when The Squad is along, and the kids need to get out of the house as often as possible. Anyway, almost everytime we back out of the driveway my Mom says “Don’t hit the Benz”. I always assumed that this was a joke, but today she didn’t say it, and I went ahead and hit the car, so I guess she did need to say it after all.

  1. I hit the side of the garage with my car and I don’t have dieting as an excuse. But I drive a Hyundai. There’s no Benz in sight around here.

  2. I’m paranoid I’ll run someone over. Seriously. The Mommy brain/ diet brain has made me a horrible driver.

  3. Huh, that’s actually Erin. Didn’t know I had a blog name now. Neato

  4. You need the beepy thing that my car does if I am backing up near something. Luckily, I can turn it off. Which is good, because it beeps constanly when you are towing something. ALso, you can’t really hear it outside of the car. Which is also good, I don’t want to look 80.

    Remember that time I bought the car & it beeped loudly outside the car, and we laughed everytime, until we figured out how to disable it???

  5. I need the beeping. I’m a total moron.

  6. Long before I met BIYM, I was dating a girl who had one of those shed-style car ports. I got in my car one day, and backed out of the thing like I was moving a golf cart. Left the door open, hung my leg off the side and everything. Hit the pole between spots, and bent the door completely around to the front fender. Paid for that one I did.

  7. Note to self…do not park behind Sarah or my Mother!!!!
    (Yes, my Mother does that too. It’s a well known fact in my family that you are putting your car in danger parking behind her.)

  8. Serves her right for not warning you that the Benz was sneaking around back there!
