I am a moron. Seriously, how many of you have ever backed into your garage and “tapped” your mirror on the side of the door. I have. Several times. In fact, I have broken my the glass in the mirror twice(?) and knocked the entire mirror off once. Sometimes I’m stupid. Oh yeah and I once hit a mail box (someone else’s) and broke the glass. The mailbox survived unscathed. But I had been at work for about twenty hours and I was just trying to make it home awake and alive.
Since we have lived in this house (2 years), I have backed into the garage about 500 times and have thus far not broken any mirrors. Until Sunday. I conveyed my stupidity to Brian who tried to make me feel better by telling me that “your side of the garage is slighly more narrow.”
Folks, above all I am honest. It has nothing to do with the narrow opening. Sometimes, I’m just stupid and don’t pay attention. I am not saying this to have you all tell me that I’m not. I realize that I am an intelligent woman who is capable, happy and tough. However we all do dumb things and I am acknowledging my dumbness. As long as it’s only sometimes, I’ll survive.
For the record, it’s a pain in the ass to drive without a passenger mirror. Maybe in a few months, it’ll even get fixed. Like I said, sometimes…
