JIM’S TRUCK

 

PEGGYAND I HAD A FAMILY GATHERING FOR MINNIE B  IN VERO BEACH FLORIDA. MOST ALL THE FAMILY CAME PLUS SOME FRIENDS.    LIL JIM CAME IN HIS JACKED UP FORD TRUCK.  A TRUCK AND A HALF    SETTING WAY UP ON BIG BIG WHEELS. YOU GET THE IDEA.

 

TERI AND DEBBIE WAS TEENAGERS AT THE TIME  ASKED JIM  IF THEY COULD BORROW THE TRUCK.  JIM [FORGETTING HE LEFT THE KEYS IN THE TRUCK] SAID LAUGHTINGLY “SUREEEEEEE”    NEXT THING JIM WAS CASHING HIS TRUCK DOWN THE ROAD YELLING     STOP I DIDN’T MEAN IT.

SO JIM IS AT THE PARTY    2 TEENAGE GIRLS IN TWO-PIECE SWIMSUITS HAVE HIS TRUCK. A VERY NERVOUS-UNHAPPY GUY.

MY NIECE ROBIN COMES UP TO ME WITH AN IDEA;   MY FRIEND AND NEXT DOOR NIGHBOR JOHN WAS AN X-COP.

   JOHN GOES NEXT DOOR AND CALLS JIM ON THE PHONE

 

SOMETHING LIKE THIS

 

“DO YOU OWN A JACKED-UP FORD TRUCK    WE PULLED IT OVER WITH 2 TEENAGERS SPEEDING IN IT.?  EMPTY BEER CANS  SO WE HAVE THEM FOR DUI.  I BELIVE IT WAS YOUR TRUCK AND YOUR BEER.  YOU STAY RIGHT THERE AND A PATROL CAR WILL PICK YOU UP”

 

IT WAS A LONG TALK ON THE PHONE AND A LOT MORE WAS SAID    JOHN PLAYED IT UP BIG.    PEGGY CAME UP BEHIND ME AND SAID    RAY YOU TELL JIM THE TRUTH OR I AM. SHE SAID WE WERE BEING VERY MEAN.

 

JIM THOUGHT SO ALSO

 

LOOKING BACK I HATED PLAYING THE JOKE ON JIM BUT EVERYTHING WAS THERE AND I COULD NOT RESIST      EVEN IF IT WAS ROBIN’S IDEA
