Well, dis story is kinda embarrassing but da cats from Forty Paws asked and it is one of the nawty things I listed fur Fat Eddy when he was looking fur a gerlfrend so I gess I shood tell da whole story....
This happened about 7 years ago, before Punkin went to the bridje and before Sadie and Speedy were here. Daddy used to work on other beans cars in our garage and one Saturday he was doing just that. As long as he was doing mechanic work he thawt he wood give mom's Omni a tune up at the same time. I liked it when dad worked on cars cuz I cood stay outside on my leash wif him. I also liked to sleep and keep a lookout from the back deck of mom's car. That is what I was doing when mom took this piksher. (aren't I adorable?)
Anyway, mom took da piksher and went back in da howse. Dad had the car running so he cood set the timing (that's what he sed). Maybe I shood mention that mom's car was stick shift. He had the other beans car parked to the left rite in front of the open garage door and mom's car was just slightly off to the right of the door. About two minits after mom took the piksher she heard a loud bang and daddy yelling and ran out da door. I had somehow gotten behind the wheel and tangled my leash around the stick shifter thingy and put it in gear and...wow, I was driving! The only problem was I couldn't stop and I hit the edge of the door frame before the engine killed. To daddy's credit the first thing he did was check to make sure I was okay, then he looked at the front of the car (it gots a bump in the bumper, hehehe) and then the garage. Whoa, the whole door frame of the garage was seperated from the rest of the garage! Then he saw 'them', ants, big black ugly ants.
Ever since my mom saw the movee "Them" at the drive-in as a little girl she has had an avershun to ants. She thinks they are creepy and way to smart fur bugs. Daddy hadda take the whole front off the garage and spray some stuff to kill all these stupid carpenter ants and den he hadda rebuild the whole thing.
Well, that's the story of my first and last solo drive. I was shook up a little, the vet sed I may haf broozed myself, but nothing was broken except the garage. If I hadn't taken my little drive the whole thing prolly wooda felled down cuz of the ants. So really, I did mom and dad a favor. Oh, and even tho mom's new car is an automatik she won't let me in there if it's running. I just know if I cood find a way to reach the pedals I cood drive her car...maybe.
