Day 1173 - Crazy Grandma Ichikawa Storytime
If spending the holidays with drunk and smelly lactose-intolerant relatives overdosing on cheap egg nog has not gotten to you yet, sit back and try to relax because it's time for another edition of...Crazy Grandma Ichikawa Storytime!
One of Andrew's favorite presents that he received from Auntie Santa Anne (pretzel maven) is his Lightning McQueen remote control car. But it's not your standard remote control car because this car can drift. If you push and turn the control at the same time, Lightning McQueen will spin around in circles. Pretty cool...unless you're Crazy Grandma.
You see, Andrew was playing with his car at the only place inside the house that doesn't have carpet: the kitchen. Since Andrew can't maneuver the car well, he was driving it around the kitchen like a group of elderly Japanese women trying to park at your local Target. He was crashing, bumping, and spinning his car against every wall and object in the kitchen. This was making Crazy Grandma quite...well...crazy.
She didn't have the heart to tell Andrew not to play with his toy in the kitchen, but she also did not want him to wreck the walls and the paint. So she came up with a brilliant idea. She decided to tape something on the front of Lightning McQueen that would prevent it from damaging the kitchen. Something soft. Something absorbent. Something like a...Kotex pad.
You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Here are three thousand words...
I am speechless...much like Lightning McQueen because he has a gigantic maxipad over his mouth.
