After the lemon meringue pie, another lesson learnt

And that is: if you've had a small grandson in the back of your car, do check that he hasn't left the window open before you take it through the car wash.

I don't like car washes at the best of times. They make me sick and disorientated. And when water(?) began to put through a back window, it took me some time to close the window. Now, the back seat is soaked, and I am drenched in what could be either water, soap, or polish. Whatever it is, it tastes funny.

Other grandparents: take note.

  1. I know I shouldn't laugh but... ha ha! I hate car washes - I get claustrophobic when the big brushes move in (I'm convinced they're going to crush my car!)

  2. I always regret going into the car wash, knowing I will start imagining the car, and I, will be crushed. I hope your car dries out soon. x

    1. Indeed. And the culprit is now 96 miles away, so I can't get at him to explain how I feel!

    1. I wanted to find out whether I really need to wash my shirt. I decided against. But it still tastes funny.
