Default Wonka 's Boot

Just received my new boot from ebay. I decided to fit it into place. I installed it and tied up 3 employees due to my screwing around. I got back, put away the truck, etc, etc. Went home, went out for a drive on the local highway, top down, hit 70 and the car filled up with swirling, flying plastic packing peanuts. Peanuts flying out. A cloud of whirling white things swirling up and out from the car. In the mirror I could see cars around me slowing down, increasing their distance. I couldn't slow down fast enough. One of my "crew" had stuffed them under the passenger's seat.
It was the best joke. 8) Embarassing, but to the point.
The boot is quite nice, smoothens the lines of the interior and unclutters the back.

That is very funny, lucky you are still aound to laugh at it.

The other drivers must have thought that you were some kind of white tornato.

I hope that there weren't any peanuts injured in the process.

Well come to think of it they were all behind me 8) , at least at that point, the onset. Once the peanuts were airborne I slowed. Wasn't sposed to be a going fast story. Just (implied predicate "sposed to be") a really good gag.
