Win It Wednesday … Stuck
Posted by Lori Wilhite
My family tree has some deep small town roots. While I may now call Vegas home, my growing up years were spent visiting my grandparents and cousins in nowhere Texas. When I was in 6th grade, my cousins who lived in the thriving metropolis of Earth, Texas decided to take me four wheeling. I was nervous since I had never done any driving outside of the bumper cars at our local mini-amusement park. When my cousin decided it was time for me to take over the driving, I was a nervous wreck. And, little did he know, he should have been as well.
We started down the dirt road slowly until he encouraged me to speed it up. All was going well that first 90 seconds when he told me, “Turn left here.” Big mistake. To any rationally thinking person, “turn left here” really means, “See that other dirt road right up there? Go ahead and turn left there.” To my completely irrational 6th grade mind, “turn left here” meant, “Turn left right here, right now. Even though there is no road and there is a deep, muddy cotton field, turn left anyway.” So … of course … I turned left … right there.
Stuck. In soft, thick, deep mud. Totally stuck. Not moving. We needed a tow truck STAT.
