I am sticking to my story. It just fell off. A few months ago, I was driving home and somehow, my passenger side mirror fell off. By itself. I swear. See, there was this bear, I mean deer, and it darted across the road in front of me causing me to swerve and hit a mailbox with the mirror housing and the mirror glass fell out. Really.
The drive home from work is all country roads. And, I have a cell phone. I was headed home and my phone dinged. I looked down and picked up the phone to see who it was. By then it was too late… I had swerved off the road and hit a mailbox. My mirror glass fell out and shattered. Crap.
I get home and told the Hubs I needed to order a new mirror glass.
Me: I need to order a new mirror for my passenger side door.
The Hubs: How come?
Me: I was driving along and it just fell out.
The Hubs: It just fell out?
Me: Yes. Yes, uh, I was swerving to not hit a deer. A big deer. It just fell off.
The Hubs: What really happened?
Me: A deer ran out in front of me and it just fell off by itself.
The Hubs: Okay…
Me: Okay, okay. I was texting and driving and ran off the side of the road and it fell out.
The Hubs: YOU WHAT?!
Me: The phone dinged and I wanted to see who it was. I wasn’t actually texting. Just looking.
The Hubs: And it just fell out? All by itself?
Me: Yes. After I hit the mailbox.
The moral of this story is two fold— first, never text and drive and if you do, make sure you have a good story lined up on why you need a new passenger side mirror. Just sayin’.
