How To Get Rid Of Your Girlfriend

Last night, we went through Snoqualmie Pass in Washington State, about 40 miles east of Seattle. When we stopped to get a bite to eat, we got word that the DOT, which has a chain law, put out a directive that any vehicles over 10,000 lbs. GVW had to put chains on their tires if they wanted to continue through the pass.

Ed pulled over on the side of the road with every other trucker and for the next hour, began chaining up his tires. It was raining lightly, but after being in it for an hour, he was pretty wet when he got back to the truck. I, on the other hand, was sitting inside surfing the internet. Um, I mean, checking the weather conditions. *cough*

While I was sitting inside, I noticed a very strong exhaust odor. I made a note to ask Ed about it once he got back in the truck. He finally climbed in and less than a mile down the road, the weather went from light rain to full-on snow. TONS of snow. In a matter of minutes, every single inch of space was white. It was beautiful. Well, for me it was beautiful, but I'm sure the guy in the car that spun out in front of us and was nearly plowed over by a Fed-Ex truck didn't find it so enchanting.

I finally asked Ed about the exhaust smell, which he said comes from the defrosting fluid. I joked with him by saying, "What? Are you trying to get rid of me and thought this would be the way to leave the least trace?"

He said, "No. If I wanted to get rid of you, I would take you back to your parents house and right in front of Frank, while he was watching TV, I would haul off and smack you right in the head."

I laughed and said, "That's the way you'd get rid of YOU, not me."

He laughed right back, since we both know that Frank would not tolerate one iota, someone doing anything of the sort to a family member. Especially me, since I'm his favorite.

Of course I know Eddie was just pulling my leg. Please. I can't even get him to kill bugs; he always wants to "set them free."

I too like to set bugs free. In the toilet. They can swim freely for miles and miles.
