We’re in a Tight Spot

CheneyBlogging Challenges, Daily Grind3 Comments

I feel like I’ve been like this all weekend:

40-15I just want to keep my hood up and head down and just sit here quietly by  myself and read Unbroken and pretend that I don’t have do anything of the things I have to do until the moment I hand over a wad of cash and sign my name on the line and drive away in my new Jeep tomorrow.

And I have this horrible feeling that something is going to go wrong and I am not going to be able to get it.

Like for some reason I’ll go there and they tell me whoops, we’re sorry, we can’t actually approve you for this loan.

Or whoops, we’re sorry, we accidentally sold this particular Jeep to someone else even though you put a deposit down on it.


I’m afraid of the Jeep Nazi.

Or maybe just bad karma.

You know, when things just feel like they’re just too good to be true, and can’t possibly be this easy? That.

We’ll see.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Silver Screen.” – Can you guess what movie the title is from in the comments?

  1. I think it is very likely that your Jeep will ready and waiting for you. As to that quotation, that could be from any number of movies, but for some reason that movie with George Clooney about some escaped chain gang members who accidentally become a bluegrass music sensation comes to mind. Damn, I can’t think of the name of the damn movie. But if that’s it, it’s kind of interesting, because my post today for the same prompt was from the movie Cool Hand Luke, and Paul Newman was a member of a chain gang.

    1. Doob, you are correct, but I’m going to wait and see if anyone else guesses before I post the movie title 🙂 And I hope you are right about the Jeep, lol!

Feel like sharing some thoughts?
