Last Wednesday night I went to a "wine and beer" dinner with Justin's family. The general gist is that there are four courses and each course comes with an accompanying wine and an accompanying beer. You get to hear a little about each wine and beer and why it was selected to go with the meal, which was really fascinating. After you've tried them both with the course, you get to vote as a table which one you thought went the best. It was really fun and delicious!
This was written on a chalk wall in the restaurant. I was very impressed and had a good old chuckle. That was pre-intoxication... Yes, I chuckle whilst sober.
So now the fun part of the week is out of the way, we move onto the most stressful/exciting thing that has EVER happened to me. I'm flat-out lying right now but go with it.
So I looked at Beastie (my car) the other day and realised how ugly and dirty she was looking. Bit disgraceful, seeing as when I stumble out of her, I always just look amazing. Beastie is more of a "hot mess", if you will. After work yesterday I had no energy to wash her and complained about this to Mum, who suggested I put her through a carwash.
A carwash? A carwash?!
I've never put Beastie through a carwash. The last time I was in a car that was in a carwash was over 10 years ago and that was Mum's car and I was 10. If you know me, I think you could gather how excited I was by this idea. I promptly jumped in my car and sped to the carwash.
The man at the petrol station did not share my enthusiasm for the carwash by the way... Our conversation went something like this:
Me: HI! How much for a carwash?? :D
Him: ... *points to a sign behind him*
Me: Oooo! Hmm, I'll have an "Express Wash" please!!
(Don't worry, I didn't do the air-quotation marks... Although I was tempted!)
Him: ... *hand out for the money* ... *hands me the ticket*
Me: THANK YOU SO MUCH!
And then... It begins. I was so nervous I needed to poop. Waiting for the car before me to finish was one of the most nerve-wracking experiences ever. I don't even know why - I knew exactly what was about to happen.
And now, I will let the pictures do the talking...
Have you recently had a "first time" experience?
Or, you know, do you get as excited by the carwash as I do?
