Mr. and Mrs. Murphy Monday: Driving Mr. and Mrs. Daisy

My family has nicknamed me and my hubby Mr. and Mrs. Murphy because of the random stuff that always seems to be happening to us. You know Murphy's Law; "Whatever can go wrong will go wrong, and at the worst possible time, in the worst possible way." I don't look at myself as cursed, but as someone who is very blessed. Weird things just happen to me, that's all. This Monday I'll share a story that happened to us a couple of years ago when we were still living in Maryland:


We were at our favorite restaurant, Timpano's in Rockville, MD. It had just begun to snow and we left the restaurant. We got into the car and closed the door. In my car, the dome light goes off when you close the door. This time was no different until...........we hear a click and suddenly the light pops back on. I'm just sitting there wondering why the light came back on, but my hubby begins to yell:


Turning head to the backseat



Hubby: Hey! Hey! Get outta here! Go!

Me: What tha?



I turned around to see an elderly couple sitting in our backseat looking like deer in headlights . They said nothing and just got out of the car and closed the door. My husband and I just stared at each other and laughed. Neither one of us remembered driving Mr. and Mrs. Daisy to the restaurant that night, so we could not figure out for the life of us why or how they ended up in our backseat. Didn't they see us get in the car first? I mean they got in like 2 seconds after we did. I think those old people had too much to drink or something. The look on their faces (like, "you aren't our drivers") was so hilarious. But the funniest part was my husband screaming at those poor old people like they were trying to rob us or something. This is a true testament to why you should lock your doors immediately when you get in the car. Just a day in the life of Mr. and Mrs. Murphy.

I had forgotten all about this story! Was even funnier the second time around!

Hilarious!! I love it! Especially the fact that your hubby yelled at them like that... maybe they were crazy robbers, you never know.. those geriatric bandits are the ones you have to watch out for.

Oh my goodness! I laughed so suddenly that now I have to go get a tissue to wipe spewed snot off my screen. That is hilarious!

You had me laughing all loud here at the office. That was too funny. I can't believe that. I know where Timpanos is. I used to work in Rockville and lived in Germantown. Now I'm closer to DC.

Driving MS. Daisy, love it! That was definitely weird, but great blogging fodder!
