Aunt Nell and The Seatbelt

Hola Y'all!!

Mom's been laughing ever since she got home today. Us perros didn't get to go with her but she told us ALL about it....when she could catch her breath from laughing so hard.

She, Joray, and Aunt Nell went to San Jose today. Mom HATES to go there cause it is really confusing and she always gets lost. Lots of one way streets and stuff y'know. They were going to look at a washing machine that Aunt Nell wants to buy.

Well, due to bad directions, as Mom predicted, they got lost and ended up on a dead end street. The road they went in on was one way so they could not go back out the way they came!! They just kept ending up on dead end streets where construction was going on.

Mom and Aunt Nell were both a little agitated at this point. San Jose is NOT a good place to be lost.

Aunt Nell called the man who owns the washing machine to try to get directions.
She was going to get out of the car to look down the road that was under construction to see if she could give him any landmarks.

Here is where it starts getting funny.

Aunt Nells cars automatic seatbelt is broken so she is in the habit of just slipping the shoulder part over her head and exiting her car.

But MY cars seatbelts work like they are supposed to.

When she tried to get out of the car she just slipped the shoulder belt over her head and stepped partway out of the car.
The lap belt was still fastened!!! She reached back and undid the lap belt latch.
NOW the seatbelt is around her waist because she put the shoulder strap over her head.
Mom grabbed the camera and took a picture right quick.
Aunt Nell, Mom and Joray all were laughing so hard they could not breathe!!

Mom says that little episode, with all the laughing, relieved the tension of being lost and made everything better. They found the mans house and bought the washing machine and a few other items.

Now every time Mom thinks about the seatbelt thing she gets laughin' and can't stop.
Coca Cola flew out of her nose while ago!!! Us perros were AMAZED!!!

But that's ok with us perros. We LIKE hearing her laugh and we don't mind a little coke shower....oh....and she gives extra treats when she is in laugh mode.

Hope you guys had a good laugh today too. Mom says a good laugh is better than any medicine!!

I am still laughing, too... and since I was still on phone with the man, he probably thought we were hysterical, in the truest sense of the word.... At least you did not have the camera at the pizza restaurant, now that was embarrassing!
