I mean, sorry about your car.

Since becoming all connected with my community, I've joined a swap group (2 actually) on Facebook - one is specifically for children's things and the other is just a, well, basically an online garage sale.

I've sold quite a few baby things on these swap sites, but only bought a little.  A few Wii games, some other random thing I can't remember right now.

It's nice, really.  My no-longer needed items go to help some other mom out, and I put a little cash in my pocket (which is almost always spent that same day on football games, or ice cream, or some other little random treat).

At the same time though, I told Mr. Curly I always feel like I'm setting up something illegal.  I'm contacted on a facebook page, the conversation moves to private messages, we set up a meeting time and place, and exchange vehicle types.  They tell me what they drive, and I respond "I'll be in the black Ford explorer."

Do you watch any movies or TV?  The bad guys now use black SUVs to kidnap people, government officials drive them to do their dirty work.... Seriously, I'm either part of the mafia or an undercover agent in this car.

It doesn't help that my daughter randomly says things like "When we saw the leese obbicers (police officers) we got out of there as fast as we could!"  Where does she come up with this stuff?!!

Post Title from Tommy Boy (you know, right after the dear totally wrecks Richard's car and Tommy says "That. was. AWESOME.  I mean, sorry about your car.")

1) Black Fords are awesome.
2) The Tommy Boy reference made me laugh out loud.
