Deb­bie the Soc­cer Mum had a lovely week­end. With hubby and brood, she went to a nearby beach just to chill a while. She hates us­ing sun­screen but this time tried to do the right thing and put some on. But a dol­lop of it went into one eye. Then on the way back to the car, she looked up at one point — with the one good eye — and the rest of the fam­ily were gone. She just couldn’t find them. Well, what to do? She trudged the fair hump back to their house, rather an­noyed. And hav­ing hubby’s car key in her pocket all this time, it meant that hubby and the kids were obliged to walk all the way back home too. She got to the house first and rang hubby. No good, he’d left his mo­bile at home. So she jumped in her car and was al­most out of her street when hubby and kids came around the corner. “What hap­pened to you?” she and hubby asked each other. Now back at the house as she got out of her car she was so an­noyed she closed her car door too em­phat­i­cally, in fact so might­ily that it jammed shut, good and solid. To drive hubby back to get his car at the beach she had to crawl over him from the pas­sen­ger side. Later on she had to call the trusty RACQ to come and un-jam the door. The next day, con­vinced she was go­ing blind, she tracked down an op­tometrist who sorted it all out.
