What Not to Do When You Are Having a Midlife Crisis
My poor unappreciated middle aged husband was needing some time without kids and wife to goof off with some friends the other day. No problem for me as the children weren't feeling well and neither was I. So off he went to meet some guys at the local sports bar to watch football or so I assumed.
The Missing Cell Phone and the Surprise Call
My son decided to go out and ride his bike (we live in the Southern United States) and I usually like for him to have a cell phone with him as he is only 8 years old and it has served well in emergency situations in the past (that's another story). Needless to say I could not find his cell phone anywhere and decided to call my husband to see if he had any idea where it could be.
I called my husband...and look below.
The Stumper in the Ditch
Being Caught With the Proverbial Pants Down
My Husband was totally flabbergasted when I reached him. He said, "I'm sorry Tam but, Johnny asked me if I wanted to go out mud-running and I said sure. Now we're in a big fix." Apparently the truck (aka the Stumper) was stuck in a ditch out in some swampy god knows where bush. Not a big ditch mind you but one deep enough where they couldn't pull back out.
Now here's the dilemma, my Husband is sure that I will never be able to find him so they have no idea how they are going to get out of the bush and Johnny's wife was in a different state visiting family.
Of course I am laughing my head off knowing that this is some stupid middle aged thing, and no I wasn't mad, I felt sorry for the two fools. I hadn't had a real good laugh in a while so I really needed it even if it was at my Husbands expense.
What Could Have Happened?
I am sure it could have been worse. No helmets, no roll bar that I know of and apparently no seat belts. Look above at the windshield on the passenger side where my husband's head hit the windshield. Luckily he's thick-headed...pardon the pun.
Still, I get a little chuckle thinking about those two old guys bouncing around in that truck. I can just picture that. Then the big crash into the ditch, and the dumfounded looks they must have shared...ooh I can barely stand it.
Needless to say they boys made it out of the bush. However the truck is still there (in the bush) today. Glad it wasn't our truck.
