Our Car Communicates with Aliens

Our Car Communicates with Aliens

Your car has secrets.
Your car has secrets.

The following conversation took place about midnight, after hubby left the car parked on the driveway rather than in the garage and after curious granny couldn’t cope with this state of things any longer.

The door is thrown open. A voice from the darkness of the corridor.

Granny (alarmed): There’s a red light blinking in the car!
Hubby (grumpily): I know.
Granny (insistent): But there’s a red light blinking there!
Hubby (annoyed): It’s the security system.
Granny (suspicious): Is it?
Hubby (disgruntled): Huh.
Granny (disgruntled): Huh.

A snort is heard. The door is slammed closed.

I’ve been studying granny’s behaviour pattern for years and discovered that she uses evading techniques to ask for what she wants. In this case study, she required that the car be put in the garage, but utilised a substitute problem to achieve her aim. She didn’t achieve it, for hubby is male and hence doesn’t take orders unless bribed. I mean, motivated.

To provide some comfort for the poor disgruntled lady, I came up with a series of alternative solutions for the blinking red light case.

1. The car is communicating with aliens.
2. The car elves are having a disco.
3. The car battery is trying to commit suicide.
4. The car is winking at thieves to come in.
5. The car is having a nervous tick.

I’m sure it’s number five because the car hates to be parked on the driveway as much as granny does.

What about your car? Do you know the secret meaning of its blinking red light?

  1. My favorite of your posts so far! I love the description of Granny and your hubby. But your five alternative solutions take the cake. Your conclusion still has me laughing. BTW, which of the solutions did Granny accept? 😉

    ps… my tuxedo cat talks to aliens. I believe he reports about his humans’ behavior on a regular basis as part of a research project.


    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment! That’s very encouraging 🙂 I think I’ll write more about granny and/or hubby because they’re ready at hand…

      I didn’t actually tell granny about the five alternative solutions, I think it would upset her. She was really very nervous about the whole car thing – the following day she reported that she couldn’t sleep because of it… It’s hard, you never know what will disturb her…

      It doesn’t really surprise me that your cat talks to aliens. Of course he does, cats are a smart race! 😉
