Metaphor? Or Coincidence

Today, my car got its ass kicked by a palm tree. AGAIN. I'm starting to wonder if maybe this is a sign. Maybe my love/hate relationship with Los Angeles is becoming more of a masochistic one? Or maybe the Gods are punishing me for driving a green station wagon. Maybe if I get it painted black with flames on the sides and tint the windows and hook-up some phat reems, the local trees will stop fucking with me. Maybe?

RIP $400 I should be spending on a very cute bag.

Second thought, probably not. Some trees just cannot be reasoned with and/or befriended. Is it just me or does this tree look like a total dick?

"I like long walks on the beach, trunks with big coconuts and fucking up green station wagons..."

I mean, seriously? Who says that?

Sometimes I just shake my head at life. I just shake my head.

I know that tree!

The mofo dented the hood of my car with one of it's man-fronds.

And then never called.

If I paid $400 for a handbag I'd feel as though I'd need to revoke my membership in the human race. How's that for a True Mom Confession?
