30 Days of Photos - Day 4 - Backwards


This is a picture of my SUV going backwards.  The time was about 8:30pm. The place was my driveway.

I had Mrs D put her foot on the brake and shift it into reverse.

She did exactly as I said.

Good thing.

She had an excellent opportunity.

Get yourself in gear and drive on over to Miss Ziva's for the rest of today's photos.

You are a trusting man. You must have been a good boy that day.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I'd paid for dinner.
Debra She Who Seeks said…
Yeah, no jury woulda convicted her!
Cheryl P. said…
Good thing you didn't make her angry right before asking her participation. Very clever picture to fit the prompt.
Agent 54 said…
That is the very definition of Backwards. Glad you survived.
babs (beetle) said…
Nice shot. It could have been so different ;)
nonamedufus said…
Hey, wait a minute, there. You wanna back-up and try that comment again?
nonamedufus said…
I would never make her angry...on purpose.
nonamedufus said…
It's the first thing that came to mind. I just needed an accomplice - I could trust - to pull it off.
nonamedufus said…
It could have been. Alas, I'm still here to finish out this damn photo competition.
Ziva said…
My goodness, dufus, you are one very brave man. And you must not have very good life insurance..
nonamedufus said…
I'm just a trusting soul, Ziva. But tell me, how does one remove tire tracks from one's legs?
Ziva said…
I have no idea, I'm usually the one behind the wheel, not the one suffering from tire tracks. Rug burns, though...
ReformingGeek said…
I'm so glad you didn't instruct Mrs. D to "put the pedal to the medal!"



Wait. Are you sure that's not the mother ship landing?
nonamedufus said…
It is an interesting shot, isn't it, what with that steamy effect and all. Kinda like Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, and you're an expert in rug burns now?
Nicky said…
Yeah, I would never have trusted Jepeto with something like that. He would have thought it was his birthday and Christmas all rolled into one. Or rolled over one. Whichever.

Great idea for this prompt! Well done, my friend!
Ziva said…
Of course. ;)
MalisaHargrove said…
You are a very trusting man my friend. Very. Mrs. D must really love you or she would have already collected the life insurance. I'm running your license plates right now. :)
nonamedufus said…
Aw, that's sad. I have to have a talk with that guy.
nonamedufus said…
Not too lame, eh?
nonamedufus said…
Yes, she loves me very much. And as a result, me her. And I'm still here to attest to it!
Traci Shannon said…
You are braver than I. I considered this as an option but I decided AGAINST asking hubby.
Well done!
:-)

This thread kinda got me hawt
mikewjattoomanymornings said…
I like it. It looks angry. I might have been angry, actually.
Jackal said…
Love it. I thought about doing this...
The Divine Mrs. D is way too refined to run you over... it would get gunk all over the car.
nonamedufus said…
What? We were only talking about burned carpets weren't we?
nonamedufus said…
I took 3 quick pictures and then shut things down before she had a chance to think more about such an opportunity.
nonamedufus said…
Well. I'd have been angry if she actually backed up.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Jackal. A little different. But then that's how I roll.
nonamedufus said…
True. True. It would have and we couldn't have that. She'd have to be the one to clean it up.
That woman suffers so... I pity her.
That is a FANTASTIC IDEA!!!!! You are very lucky you lived to tell about it!
Shawn Ohara said…
I had a similar thought, but I backed out.
nonamedufus said…
Lucky is my middle name.
nonamedufus said…
I would have gotten my back up if you had followed through.
Lauren said…
I'm glad you survived the shot. Great take on the prompt.
mike said…
Possibly THE most dangerous shot of the day. Good idea too.
nonamedufus said…
By now in this competition I kinda wish she had have backed over me.
nonamedufus said…
Well, it just shows you the lengths I'll go for my art, Mike.
Cheryl said…
Maryse wouldn't run you down going backwards! She'd be sure to be in Drive and floor it!

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
