Tail light...

Post by JMG » Mon Jun 11, 2018 6:14 pm

Driving up to North Carolina today. Looked back in my side view mirror just in time to see something go flying off my van. Turns out it was my tail light cover/lens. So that sucked.

I think I saw your tail light snuggling up with sock in the gutter. The sock was dirty. Very. Dirty.

You must have been on the freeway and it got run over.

My car was once hit by a tire that came off of a van that was driving down the road. I was too amazed watching the van scrape down the road to notice the tire until it hit my car broadside.

It'll make for an interesting special request in your next missionary letter.

It should go something like this, "In need of a new tail light *read "new van"* Please and thank you.

Was it the left or right rear tail light? Don't want to pick up the wrong one in August.

I saw a tail light cover on the side of the road yesterday. You don’t suppose the wind could have blown your light out this way, do you?
