As we were driving to Steele Indian School Park last night the conversation passed on to the subject of minor bingles (car accidents), triggered by the sight of a car parked way over on the right of the 51 with one side of the bumper hanging to the ground.
Sonya wondered how it had got that way. I opined that someone had sideswiped him on the corner of the car and that reminded her of how, when she was 16 and newly licensed, she'd sideswiped a brick wall but had lied about it to her mother, saying that another driver had sideswiped her and driven off. (Phew, I thought that sentence was never going to end!).
I thought a moment and asked...
'Did it damage the running board?'
The look I got in reply wasn't as kind as it could have been. :-)
