who is him?
It was a TOTAL accident! I’d forgotten this happened, until we were watching Good Luck Chuck Friday night and Jessica Alba electrocuted Dan Cook. I laughed the REST of the movie. Not at the movie but at the memory.
Imma keep this short…
Summer 1997, I asked Ian to come with me by my grandma to help me with my car. 87 Honda prelude red, missing driver side mirror. lol I’d tried to start it, but it wouldn’t start. So he comes over and starts poking around under the hood with my Par’rain. I was sitting in the car fiddling with stuff waiting on them to tell me try to start it. That was my job and dammit I was doing a GOOD job of it… When Ian says I think it’s the battery.
I clearly remember the following conversation:
me: okay well we can go to auto zone and just buy a new one.. i mean the car IS 20yrs old.
ian: cool, turn the car off. so i can take the battery out.
ian: Did you turn the car off?
ian: are you SURE?!
me: I SAID yes! damn *and yes i said it with attitude*
(i remember thinking WTH does he keep asking me the same fuking question, SHYT)
The NEXT sound I heard was this very loud BUZZ ZAPP and Ian say AHHHH FUCK!!! as he jumped back from the car.
me: OMG! WHAT HAPPENED?! ARE YOU OKAY?!
ian: (through clenched teeth) LEAVE ME ALONE
me: but are you okay? what happened?!
ian: PATRICE, LEAVE ME ALONE!
(fyi… Ian NEVER calls me Patrice, and I NEVER call him Ian unless we’re mad with each other)
me: I’m so sorry
(ian walks around to the driver side, reaches in and turns the key to the OFF position, snatches the key out the ignition then glares at me)
me: e, i’m sooooo sorry. i thought it was off! i’m sorry!
meanwhile my Par’rain is DYING laughing. leaning against the house for support b/c he is so tickled.
And that my dear e-friends is how the story of the FIRST time i almost killed him. There was another time at work where i almost smashed him between 2 cars, and then another time where i almost made him break his neck/back. But they are both stories for another day.
looking back at how i’ve almost taken him out not one, but THREE times and he has never beat my ass, i should love him forever and ever! I don’t know HOW i let that moment slip to the dark recesses of my mind, but hell if we made it through that then we’ll make it through this!
