Is it window shade or sun screen?
Today was our annual Sunday service where church was fun. Er..particularly fun. It's called Vision Awareness Sunday, we do a big production, and there are plenty of free donuts to go around. This year, I played 'Dorothy' from the Wizard of Oz. But that is not the point of this blog.
The point is to say that after church as I was getting back into my car and was about to take down the shades that block the scorching heat from roasting my car even more than it already does, I heard thwap thwap....thwap thwap. Naturally, I assumed someone was tapping on my car, trying to get my attention to tell me what an amazing job I did in the play. So I get out of the car, all smiles, only to find an empty parking lot.
Puzzled, I got back into the car, reached for the window shades again, only to hear the recurring thwap thwap....thwap thwap. I quickly jump out of the car again, even more excited to find out who would want to congratulate me so much that he would want to get my attention, distract me, and then cause me to look for him! The dramatic tension builds!!
Again, empty parking lot.
I get back in the car, take down the window shade, and discover my admirer.
The windshield wipers were on.
