They Think This Is Funny?

July 13, 2007

Just a few minutes ago I was driving home, trying to keep myself awake (as usual), when out of nowhere I heard a loud THWAP! on the outside of my car door. It scared me so bad that my heart is still beating rapidly. At first I thought a rock had hit the car, but then I looked at my window and I saw all this opaque liquid running down. My next thought was, “Did I just witness the biggest bird crap in history?” But upon inspection of the car once I got home, I saw a little piece of eggshell clinging to the door. I was EGGED, people, EGGED! Boyfriend David had to explain to me that this is a thing that kids like to do: hide in the bushes or behind walls or fences and throw eggs or water balloons at the cars going by. When I was trying to figure out what hit my car my feelings were mostly those of shock and curiosity. But once David enlightened me on what really happened, they quickly turned to anger. Now I must vent. I mean those stupid kids could cause a wreck! It’s just plain mean! It has never once entered my mind that that would be a fun thing to do. I don’t understand it. And since I’m too lazy to do anything about it tonight, I’m gonna have dried egg goop on my window tomorrow to clean up. Simply lovely!

    From David, The Rainmaker:

    nooo!!! Clean it now!!! There’s something in egg whites that stain and rip the paint on cars. I got egged once in Dallas from some kids who were throwing them over fences, was lazy and didn’t clean it, and TO THIS DAY there is a spot on the top of my car that looks like I cooked my breakfast on the top of my car. Clean it!

    Chill out David, I cleaned it the next morning, and no damage done! Except that there is sometimes still a lingering smell inside the car because some egg got in the crack of the door. It is pretty much disgusting.

    ugh Kids. And you are right, it could cause a wreck. That’s the first thing I thought of when you mentioned getting hit by an egg. And they won’t learn their lesson until someone gets hurt, or killed, which is really sad.
