This is what happens to me every time I go through the car wash. To start with, I am a control freak, so putting the car in Neutral and letting go off the wheel is a real matter of trust moment. I think that all hell is going to break loose.
Now, once the process has started, I am in a panic mode. I imagine that some steel beam is going to make a hole through the windshield, all that soap and water and the heavy pieces of material that wash the car, are going to come through and leave me faceless. This is really a moment of total surrender. Today was no different. I closed my eyes, which makes it worse because my imagination, and I have one that will break all the charts of taking off, starts working in overdrive. Air conditioner is off, music is off, so it is only me, the sound of monsters getting ready to get into action, perspiration going everywhere, and car totally out of my control and I am at the mercy of someone’s computer machine.
But today, two days older than the six decades plus I just had, I developed the guts and became fearless and thought, what the heck, faceless or not, I am going to take a picture to illustrate to my worldwide audience that I am a woman with no fears whatsoever! It only lasted a few seconds, because then I thought, yeah, that will be something for the blog, “Faceless woman found in flooded car with lots of soap trying to take a picture.” See, I told you, I am really endowed or gifted in the imagination department. Thank you God, but show me how to control it too.
Have sparkling looking car, ready for the daughter’s approval. I am so excited to show her a very clean car and a mom with a face still in place.
Having my birthday cake, still, and eating it too!
