I saw this and it made me laugh more and more as I read into it. I'll follow the guidance re setting off fireworks in the car. Apparently that's risky!

I'm putting it here as I don't want to start a thread on this, but I've been to a beer garden for the first time and was expecting disposable glasses but no the same old glass ones! Will be taking my own plastic glass and will decant the drink into it!

downtoearth. Like your style. Was the car a brand new Mercedes and the driver tall, dark and handsome?

When I was working in the US I used to stop at my local Starbucks every morning on my way to work.

One morning instead of jumping back into my rented tan coloured Chevrolet I jumped into someone else's tan coloured Chevrolet standing nearby. I hadn't quite got used to getting into the driver's side of the car and ended up almost on the lap of a lady passenger. She screamed. I jumped. My Starbucks went down my front.

I think she initially thought she was being car jacked but I was so obviously shocked that she saw the funny side in the end.
