Jamie vs. The Thump - Jamie Farrell

Jamie vs. The Thump

I don't have any idea what's up with the shadow of my glasses on my face.

I don’t have any idea what’s up with the shadow of my glasses on my face.

I mentioned yesterday that SuperHubby took me to a military ball in downtown Montgomery the other night. We had a great time with good friends that we’ve made over the last year… and then it was time to go home.

As per our usual tradition after military balls, I drove home. But we had only gone about a mile down the road when I heard something… unusual… coming from behind me.

It was a soft thump.

I hadn’t felt myself run over anything, but it still bothered me.

And then it happened again.

Thump. Thump thump.

It wasn’t quite midnight, the streets were nearly deserted, and there was something thumping in my trunk. And y’all, it wasn’t my country music.

“So, SuperHubby,” I said hesitantly, “you don’t have somebody stashed in the trunk, do you?”

“Do I–what?”

I started to repeat my question, but he shushed me.

And then we heard it again.

Thump. Thump. Thump thump thump.

“What’s in the trunk?” I said.

“My golf clubs.” He sounded just as mystified as I was. “Do you want to pull over? Maybe it’s the tire.”

So I pulled over, on a dark street in downtown Montgomery. And SuperHubby hopped out of the car, took two steps, and said a word you’ll only see very occasionally on this blog, but not today. Then he stomped back into the passenger seat. “The ball game just got over,” he said.

Thump thump. Thump. Thump thump.

“There’s nothing wrong with our car. It’s the fireworks.”

He strapped back in, I put the car back in gear, and we went along our merry way. Until halfway home, when he stopped mid-conversation and said, “Did you seriously ask me if I had somebody in my trunk?”

Yes. Yes, I did. And I would probably do it again. 🙂 Because, seriously, how often do you really get a chance to ask somebody that?

(If the answer is more than zero, and you weren’t kidding, I probably really don’t want to know. Just for the record.)

You clean up real good!

Did it feel like it was coming from the trunk? How close were the fireworks? Or, did he really have a body in the trunk and just wanted to throw you off the track so he he didn’t have to add you to the bodies in the trunk? Hmmmm 🙂

You both look great though, by the way (and I wouldn’t have noticed a shadow if you hadn’t pointed it out).

You looked beautiful…enough so that…should we count nine months???

And I can’t say as I’ve ever thought thump thump with fireworks, so that’s a new one 😉

Well sometimes its just best not to ask questions and help dump the body. LOL

Kathy Rando Giannone says June 12, 2014

Truthfully, how often can you ask about a body in a trunk? I think it is wonderful you thought to ask!
