So i know that a lot of people use the word "literally," but this isn't a 'JBeibs literally blew my mind' or a 'I will literally kill you if you write about this on your blog' type use of the word (i hope). This is a literal use of the word.
Earlier this year, I'm pulling into a spot in the mall parking lot (probably to new tires or a gun to shoot small birds or something....okay, it was for a spa treatment. So what? I have good hygiene and don't like calluses. Hate me for it.) and as I'm waiting for the occupants to vacate a third row position, great for a saturday, (albeit I was a little disgruntled that it was next to a fingerprint-laced SUV (children and swinging doors...ugh)), I see two hot blond girls getting into their car to pull out on the other side of the mom-mobile (no...not mine. and I will have you know I've seen 4 guys driving my Mazda CX7 (*cough* in the last 3 years*cough*).
All of a sudden I see the reverse lights go on from behind me. The blonds's's' car start to pull back.
I honk my horn. I can't go forward because my spot's car is pulling out. I can't go backwards because their car was so close to mine. I felt like i was back high school when I had to quit the baseball team I didn't want to be in to try out for a musical I probably couldn't get a role in. I was stuck. I honk again and again and agaaaaaaain.....then, BANG(arang)! HOOKed me right in the bumper.
She got out and apologized and all....and honestly, it was pretty tough to be that mad. I mean, I knew i would get a new bumper from daddy (she was driving a brand new BMW) and I was 5 min away from getting a full body. So I got her number and then all of a sudden realized....I got her number! So i did what any self respecting man would do who was hit (on) by a girl who was out of his league...I asked her on a date.
Needless to say, the only love that came out of this wreck was my week long rental of a Buick Enclave while my CX7 was in the shop.
But it just goes to show you...some things aren't destiny--they just happen...on accident.
