Only in Utah
I was driving in Springville Saturday morning when I passed something all-too-familiar down here: a fender bender. What I noticed next, however, was not as familiar....the young gal who had been rear ended was leaning casually across the trunk of her car smiling up at the young man who had run into her...who was leaning against the side of her car and smiling back.
They were flirting.
And apparently having a good time of it, which was suprising considering the broken pieces of taillight and miscellaneous debris on the road and the flashing red and blue lights of the city police writing up his tickets.
I can hear it now.
"Mom.....how did you and Dad meet?"
"Well honey, its a funny story...it all started when your dad rear-ended my Toyota with his pickup".
Only in Utah can you have an accident and wind up with a date.
I can only hope he didn't rear end her on purpose just so he could meet her.
