On Tuesday when I headed out for lunch I planned to pick up some groceries before I came home, and I had a conundrum. How could I get the groceries into the trunk without getting my coat full of highway sludge?
Have I mentioned that I'm short and have to pretty much lean across the back bumper to reach inside the trunk to put things in and take things out?
Then I had a bright idea.
What is it they say...? Necessity is the mother of invention?...
I thought- bring an old bath towel to lay over the dirt!
Works like a charm.
No dirty coat then, no dirty coat now. I left the towel in the trunk within easy reach and it saves the day.
At least the coat.
Or white sweater, as the warm weather case may be.
