Say, what?


Tuesday, May 02, 2006


I called him my car wash fairy.

I used to know a guy who would secretly wash my car and fill it with gas while I was at work.

Today, with the price of gas, I'd call him a sugar daddy.

Nonetheless, my car wash fairy has long since flown the coop and left me with
bird droppings ... on the hood, door, trunk and side doors.

Once upon another time, my man actually pulled the tires off my car and polished the rims AND shined the rubber.

Now, my dirt-laden vehicle sits ever-so lonely amongst his clean, shiny trucks.

Have able-bodied, liberated women driven car wash fairies out of existence?

Do they only visit those women they want to impress?

My new car wash fairy is called rain.

Once upon a time, you were a much younger woman with assets that reflected your age. Your car wash fairy was hoping for a reward (and it wasn't a plate of chocolate cookies). If you want your man to start paying attention to you, you should start checking your makeup and wearing your special clothes when you go to work. Not every day but about once a week. When he asks why you're doing it, just say it's nothing special. He'll start to get nervous and do stuff for you. Of course, if it doesn't work, it could indicate that you and your man should formalize your relationship because it's passed the point of titilation.

Spud has paid for many tankfuls of gas, but he leaves the washing of my car to me. Which is why it rarely gets done! Guess I'll have to pull out those special clothes.

Car wash fairies??? You mean the fairies are male? You mean to say that all these years I’ve been missing something? Well…dang me!! I was wondering why I couldn’t see out my window! If they are male, then it will be a long wait in the fancy clothes to get anything done. hehehe

The "car wash fairy" is in the same locale as the "flower fairy" and other flighty things that tend to go away to some extent with time!

Atleast you had a car wash fairy at one time, its more than I can say for myself. Right now my car has two big bird poos on the back driver's side window and my husband hasn't broken out the Windex. I guess sexy pregnancy clothes are a contradiction in terms. Maybe I can throw down the "I'm building your baby" card.
