Driving Into Darkness

| Related | October 29, 2013

(I am in the car with my mom and brother, running errands. My mother drives a Jeep, and it’s a little big. Mom wants to pass a car in order to turn right, but it’s a narrow fit between the car, and a light post and tree right next to each other.)

Mom: “Can I pass?”

Me: “I don’t think we’ll fit.”

Mom: “We’ll fit!”

(She drives through, misses the post by an inch, and we hit with tree branches hanging down.)

Mom: “I told you we’d fit!”

Me: *unable to resist* “I am not sure that qualifies.”

Mom: “Why does that sound familiar?”

Brother: “She’s quoting Star Trek. So were you, actually.”

Mom: “…oh.”
