A funny thing happened to me the other day.
I was driving down the street, focused on my destination, when I noticed someone in the vehicle behind me trying desperately to get my attention. I checked my rear view mirror to make sure that the trunk wasn’t open, and my doors were closed properly. My tires seemed to be rolling just fine. I figured it couldn’t be me that this driver was so frantically waving at.
The car closed in on me and continued to honk and wave. Now I could clearly see that it was a woman in the driver’s seat.
I decided I’d better pull over to the side of the road and see what this woman wanted from me. She stopped behind me and jumped out of her vehicle. “There’s something on your car!” she exclaimed, looking both frightened and confused at the same time. She was pointing to something latched on the side of my teal blue Pontiac Convertible.
I gasped and jumped back. I saw what appeared to be a slithering black and pink snake sticking to the side of my rear bumper!
The next second, I burst out into laughter. The pink and black slithering snake was my magnetic necklace.
It had come off from around my neck when I removed my sweater and tossed it into the back seat of the car, before getting into the driver’s seat.
I tried to explain the necklace and the magnetic thing – but alas the poor dear still had the look of horror on her face as I calmly placed the necklace back around my neck, and drove away.
