“Share the strangest experience of your year. Did you do something new or unexpected, see something out of the ordingary, or have a unique experience? What was so strange about it?”
The ThinkKit prompt. It made my head hurt. So much so, that I’m just now sitting down to write this.
About a year ago from the day we recently had those tornados, (does that make sense?) My husband and I were out with friends in Broad Ripple. It was a Friday, we weren’t out late and we hadn’t had a lot to drink. In fact, a quick thunderstorm had blown through while we were at Flatwater. We got home at around 9pm. Early for a Friday, and dark when we got home.
We got home, let the dog out and back in, and settled in for the night.
We woke up the next morning, my husband let the dog out, and I hear a shout of confusion from the back porch.
This is what he found.
My poor, poor chaise lounge. What happened? Who dunnit?
After much confusion and searching, we found the holes in our siding.
The downside – I’m kinda sad I missed the storm, I love me a good storm. Our roof was only 6 years old (because of hail) and we had to replace it.
The upside – Our siding was 20 years old, and we were saving to replace it. It was ugly, and faded, and falling off in spots. Go go insurance. New roof, siding, and gutters!
That’s my weird story.
