Good Morning, Everyone! 🚘 IT’S TOO LATE TO LOOK BACK NOW 🚘
🎶 She had a million dollar smile and a body in MINT CONDITION ..My heart’s too broke to pay attention…If love was a penny I couldn’t afFORD to fall…every girl in the world tonight could have sweet intentions…My heart’s too broke to pay attention.… 🎶 “My Heart’s Too Broke to Pay Attention” – Mark Chestnut 1993
🚘 We’re seeing Dad BEMOAN his loss, his tears fall like a GEYSER,
Will this cause a DIVIDE to grow while making him grow wiser?
His wife said “FOLLOW my advice, don’t park in the driveway”
But she didn’t COERCE him…and there he let it stay…
And now it’s smashed and CLUNKY, and the sight is truly sickening…
His prized possession’s ruined now on this sad, sad DAY OF “WRECKONING” 🚘
Looking at the calendar, and starting to fear that I’m going to crash and burn if I don’t get all the Holiday planning done in time, I just did a quick search of the Archives this morning…I didn’t go looking all the way back...Well except for COERCE…and that’s only because it popped up immediately on 05/23/10… And except for CLUNKY, which is coming up new, our other four words all appeared last year, with GEYSER going off on09/21, making it our most recent entry. And there was no trouble untangling any of our words this morning…we just plowed right through…Anyway, it’s not that I’m not driven to dig deeper into the Archives this morning…I’m just so overly busy…It’s December 8th already, Folks! Almost crunch time!
Ok…our cartoon. Today we find ourselves in the driveway of a family…perhaps in ROAD Island. And we can AUTOmatically see that something’s definitely gone wrong. Junior has backed up into his Fathers vintage, mint condition car, and he’s caused poor Dad to climb the wheels in grief. Which in turn has caused Jr to get his wheels in motion…apologizing, but becoming defensive…driving home his point that he was in a hurry. But you can VETTE your bottom dollar, that’s no excuse. Plus I think it best he stop talking, since he’ll only be adding fuel to the fire…And Mom, blaming Dad for leaving the car in the driveway? Well that’s not doing much to brake up the tension now is it? I mean, how’d he not see the car parked there? How, because he yield to look back...(pun intended)! Was he in that much of a rush? C’mon, wheely? Nope…no excuse at all. You just don’t play ride and seek when you’re backing up. First rule…turn and look out the rear window. We all know that…Hitchcock knows that…why even I know that…and the only thing I’ve ever driven anyone to do is drink!…Anyway, Jr’s wrecked Dad’s car after he’s kept it so pristine all these years. And that poor car has finally met its’ hatch..backing up did it in…So, in answer to our question…the car’s met its’ DAY OF “WRECKONING”! A smashing pun!
Eye candy? We see Mom looking angry, Jr shell-shocked, and Dad…well he looks down right GAStly…The car’s passenger side is totaled, the tires are flattened and the rear window’s completely shattered…And brought to his knees, so is Dad…And the repair bill may be exhausting…let’s not forget about Jr’s car too, sitting there with it’s back end an accordion and it’s trunk thrown open…I just hope he can afFORD it all…So, There you have it, Volks...Done. Have a great day, Everyone…And let’s pray Dad doesn’t end up blowing a gasket…I’d hate to see the poor guy needing a CARdiologist…🚘🙋🏻♀️
