Sweet Potato Pie. Locked Up With Marked Men.

Sweet Potato Pie

This video totally cracked me up. The pranked people are funny, but the pranksters expressions kill me.

You know what also cracked me up? Yesterday, I almost got locked overnight in a car dealership 1 1/2 hours from home.

Huh?, You might ask.

I have to bring my car to the dealership for its annual service while it is under warranty. And that dealership is a 90 mile drive north. I arrived at 8:30 am and the service guy reviewed what needed to be done. He indicated that it would take the entire day.

I was prepared and headed to the internet lounge armed with hours worth of paperwork, email correspondence, and other business that I have been putting off. Hours came and went with no updates, so I figured no news was good news.

I knew the dealership closed at 6:30 pm, so at 6:12 I packed up my stuff and went in search of the service workers to see if my car would hopefully be ready to drive home that night.

Locked. Everything.

I wandered around and there was a man from an adjoining dealership locking up the last of the doors. He was surprised to see me, of course, and asked if he could help me.

“Well, I’d like to check on my car and go home. Can you find my service guys?” To which he replied that everyone had gone home and it was his turn to close for the night.

Can you believe that?? Fortunately, my car was finished and the keys were inside. It was in a locked garage, but Honda guy was able to let me out.

There. I’m cracking up now, but not so much yesterday.

Sweet Potato Pie.

No proper way to tie that into porta potties or car dealerships. Let’s just say the pie is light, easy and a lovely alternative to pumpkin pie.
