On the Road Again

I'm going on a short trip soon, and Ron has decided to let me take his car because it's more comfortable for driving long distances. (He doesn't like me to call it "his car" but he probably won't read this, so it'll be our secret.)

We have two cars. One is mine. I'm not supposed to say that either. It's our car but I drive it to work every day and we use it whenever we need to transport something large or messy. Then there's his car our other car, which is newer; I'm only allowed to drive it under exceptionable circumstances, like when the other car is in the shop.

So, I feel quite privileged. And nervous. Ron outlined the rules for me.

"No food in the car."
"No, Sir."

"No drinks in the car."

"No, Sir."

"No breathing in the car No driving over parking bumpers."

"I'll try not to this time, Sir."

"No parking near other cars or under trees."

"I'll do my best, Sir."

"There will be a thorough inspection when you get home."

"And you'll administer the appropriate discipline depending on what you find?" I smiled hopefully.

"No! There will be no discipline. . . I walked right into that one, didn't I?"

Oh, well. Maybe I'll get a welcome home spanking if the car passes inspection. And I know he'll make sure I'm not all that comfortable when I set out in the morning.

Hi Hermione,

I love Ron's rules LOL. He forgot no going over speed limit. (that's what P tells me).

When you get back, will he have you standing there while he looks over the car :)

Safe journey and enjoy your trip

Mike - that's excellent advice. I keep my cellphone out of reach while driving.

Daisy - I'm sure he meant to, but he ran out of time.

Ronnie - I never exceed the speed limit, and irritate the faster drivers behind me.

Yes, he will.

lets see... bent over with hands firmly in the front seet, allowing a full view of a clean interior, and a rear sticking out the open door . Pants down or skirt up.... and the hairbrush from her purse to explain that this is what the car is to look like when it returns... The problem is... I am not sure if I want her hands in the seat or mine!! And where would this take place? Garage at home, driveway of our some what rural home, the self serve wash bay of an empty car wash on the way home from a night out? Nice fantasy anyway.

Love4her - yes, very nice indeed!
