My company closed early today so I got home about 2. I barreled up the snowy driveway to discover that YA wasn’t home. When I called her, she said she was at her boyfriend’s house. I told her she shouldn’t wait too long to come home as the roads were terrible. She said “his house is only 5 minutes from ours”. Well, there’s no arguing with THAT, is there?
Fast forward 2½ hours and the phone rings. It’s YA saying she’s stuck at the bottom of the driveway and asking what to do. I told her to get a shovel, clear out all around the tires and up the driveway a bit. Despite thinking it was her bed and she should lie in it, it didn’t take long before I coated up and went out to help. At about that time our neighbor came and helped as well. YA didn’t really know how to rock the car so I took over, but to no avail.
Neighbor and I decided I should back out onto the street, go around the block and approach the driveway from the north so I could get up some speed. Of course in the crush of traffic, this maneuver took almost 20 minutes, but it did the trick.
When we got back in the house I said “you know I will never be able to resist saying I told you so?” She kinda grinned and said “I know.”
Anybody gotten to say “I told you so” lately in your life?
