So, me, my friend and his girlfriend went out for dinner tonight. We went out to KFC. The KFC we go to is in the town north of us and is about a half
The drive is on a highway that goes through farmland. Mostly a lot of rocky fields in which lots of cows tend to roam. Once in a while you'll an
occasional deer. There are a lot of crows that you can see, and dead ground squirrel that had the misfortune of being run over.
So my friend's girlfriend is looking out the window, just enjoying the drive, and occasionally pointing out a deer that poked her head up. All of a
sudden, she blurts out "Look at the blow jobs on the road!" She said it pretty excitedly.
So we're both looking at where she's pointing, and we don't see anybody. We don't think anything of it. Then she says it again, pointing at the
side of the road.
Then it dawns on us what she's looking at. When you see it from a distance all you see, at first, is a black shape on the road. When it comes closer
to you, you see that it becomes a large piece of black rubber.
It dawns on us that what she is pointing to is a large piece of rubber that had been a retread of the tires of a semi truck. In short, it's a
temporary repair of the semi's tire that is in poor conditions. Drivers retread their tires because it saves money in the long run. We, her boyfriend
and I, tend to call them blow outs.
Because that's what happens. The retread simply comes apart and we call that a blow out. I've never seen one happen though, I've only seen the
retread debris along the side of the road.
You see, his girlfriend is dyslexic, and sometimes words will criss-cross in her brain. She will say a word and sometimes doesn't understand what she
says. In this case, she was confusing the word blow job with the word blow out.
We understood what was happening and her boyfriend told her that it was a blow out, not a blow job.
Her face was red, but all three of us had a good laugh at it.
So that's my sordid tale of the day.
