What the Heck?

I left work Wednesday, running a little late for my chiropractor appointment, and went to my car. It was parked in the gravel-and-dirt parking lot behind the building, where employees are supposed to park so that patients can have the good parking spots in front. This parking lot does not have trees. It also is not near the building. This is what I found when I got to my car:

Here's a closer look:

I said, "What the heck???"

It's as though an entire flock of birds stopped mid-air to hover over the back of my car and bird-bomb it. And neither of the cars next to me was hit, except a few tiny drops of excess splatter on the one to my right.

How does this happen? Was it one bird on a horrible rampage? Was there a loud noise that scared the... you know... out of a flock of birds? What the heck was going on over my car???

I didn't have much time for contemplation or mystery solving, because I had to get to Dr. Magic Hands.

When I got home, I grabbed my camera and got pictures.

Thankfully, overnight we had some rain, so it washed away the worst of the white and left all those little yellow dots that don't want to come off, even with the gas station squeegee. Still, it's better than it was at first sight.

But that's not the end of the story, because Thursday the Corporate Communications department communicated with all the employees that we could get a FREE CAR WASH!

I called the lady on the email and told her my shocking story, and she said that God must be apologizing to me. She might be right. I went to her office and picked up my car wash card (valid Monday to Thursday):

I don't know what an Average Joe Express Car Wash is, exactly, but I'll be finding out soon. Probably Monday.

Glad you're blogging again.

Work has made it nearly impossible to blog in the daytime. We can't as much as leave a comment anywhere on any websites if we're using our work internet, which is all I've had. Now with my smart phone, maybe, but I'm not comfortable enough with that.

Of course, I'd have to have something to say in order to blog. Good thing my back went out and those birds came along to make me talkative...

P.S. Yes, I saw what you called me. :o)
