Most of you know that fishing is one of Mr. Handsome’s hobbies. His childhood friend introduced him to the sport when the two were in middle school, and it has been a favorite past-time of his ever since. I often go with him, but only if the weather is decent. He went last weekend when it was cold and rainy, so I stayed behind.
When he came home, I was thrilled to see that he had caught about 20 fish, enough to have a fish fry and freeze some for later. I met him outside to help him unload his gear and found him shoveling mud out of the driver seat of our car. “I ventured a little too far off the gravel road and got stuck in the mud,” he explained.
Oh my. That’s a lot of dirt.
I took a deep breath and decided it wasn’t worth getting angry at him. He’s an adult who doesn’t need to be disciplined, and he clearly felt pretty bad about it already. So I went inside, grabbed some supplies, and helped him clean up the mess. I have to laugh because this whole fiasco is a perfect illustration for my vlog about not sweating the small stuff (something I fail at all the time).
A little bit of rug shampoo went a long way, and the car looks as good as new. Well, maybe not quite…it’s a 10-year-old vehicle, after all. Sure am glad I invested in rubber mats! And in the future, perhaps a car with a dark interior would be a good idea.
