Skippy, Skippy, Skippy the Sore Kangaroo December 16, 2007Posted by Mistress B in Car, Christmas, Hubby, Kids.
Skippy must be sore tonight.
”Why is that?” you may very well be thinking.
Cos I frickin well hit him with my car!
Luckily I was only 1/2 km out of town and only doing 80km/hr when it happened. He came out of long grass on the side of the road, I had no chance of missing it.
I’ve only ever hit one thing before, the tree that I wrapped my parents car around (literally) when I was 17 and stupid.
It freaked me out a little…….. until I realised that what I had seen flying around up the side of the car was the shattered parking light and not parts of the kangaroo. Freaked the kids right out, I’m talking tears and “take me home mummy” being wailed from the back seat.
We high-tailed it back into town and I’ll be damned if the stupid kangaroo didn’t jump out in front of me again!! Skippy has a death wish I’m sure! We managed to waved my hubby down as he was heading out in the truck to get him to check the car over. The front grill is smashed, and the left parking light is gone, and the bumper is a little out of whack, but that’s it. Luckily. Fortunately I’d only clipped it with the front left hand corner of the car, if it had hit in the middle, we’d have been in trouble. It was a BIG roo.
Hubby was pissing himself laughing after he’d checked the car out. Our bonnet always sticks a little and is a bugger to open. Well, it used to be. It pops open quite easily now. He was all “well you mighta fucked the parking light, but you sure did a good job fixing the bonnet”. Asshat. At least the kids stopped freaking out once they saw their dad laughing about it all though.
Then he’s says to me “It’s only got to last another 9 months, don’t write it off just yet”. Haha freakin’ ha. Think ya funny don’t ya?
Anyone got a kangaroo suit I can dress him up in?
