Throwback Thursday – I’m Covered in Bees

Because I never seem to have enough time to properly update (despite what my Candy Crush Saga score will tell you) I’ve decided to yoink the idea of “Throwback Thursday” for mine own dark purposes, mwahahahaha….

Erm, yeah. I’ll work on that evil laugh some more until it’s perfected. And by perfected, I mean we’re talking original animated Maleficent perfected. (On a complete sidenote, I’m quite looking forward to the new Maleficent movie. I don’t really care for Angelia Jolie, personally, but I’ll admit she is a talented actress. And Maleficent has always been my favorite of the Disney villains.)

So, for my own version of Throwback Thursday, I’ve decided to share with you a funny or memorable post from either my personal blog or Facebook. I’ve had a few moments that still make me laugh, and I can only hope that you’ll enjoy them as well. You should feel quite special, really. Only certain peoples are allowed to read my personal blog. So, without further delay, I present to you the thoughts from summer two years ago.

August 23rd, 2011

As I was on my way to work yesterday, I saw triangular hazard signs on the side of the road, prompting me to start looking for a car or person in trouble. What I saw instead were several boxes and what appeared to be garbage lying everywhere. As I continued driving along, poor Steve (the name for my ’05 Dodge Neon) was suddenly pelted with what sounded like dirt clods. I let out a (minor) shriek and realized that there were bugs all over my windshield. Giant, disgusting bugs. I assumed they were flies of some kind, only to find out from a co-worker later that someone managed to dump several beehives on the side of the road. So there were remnants of bees all over my windshield and the hood of my car.

It was at this inopportune time that I discovered I no longer had any windshield wiper fluid left. This, of course, being after I smeared bee guts all over my window. Thankfully, I was close to my destination, but it was extremely icky and a bit harrowing nonetheless. After work, I drove straight over to Wal-Mart (only a block away, thank heavens) and stocked up on windshield wiper fluid and glass cleaner like I was expected some kind of bee apocalypse. (I can see the headlines now: “They could have escaped…if they only could have seen out of their windshields…”)

Naturally, I found an unopened bottle of wiper fluid in my trunk after I bought the new ones. Because finding it beforehand would have been convenient.

Sometimes life just kicks you in the head for no reason other than it wants a good laugh at your expense. Honestly, I’m turning into one of those “When life hands you lemons, wing ‘em right back and add a few lemons of your own” kind of person.
