You know, the thing that makes a good story a good story is that it COULD be true. Most people thought the whole story was true; a few folks got the truth backwards, but a hand full of you savvy hounds couldn't be persuaded.
The airport stuff is all true except for the car getting towed. The highway rescue? Not so much. Completely fabricated except for the thunderstorm part.
I had a lot of fun with this type of post, and it seems you guys did too. I look forward to the next one.

Our Laughter Lives
Last night I was looking for my water bottle. I’m trying to kick the soft drink habit so I carry about a big one liter water bottle all the time.
I had it at dinner time and realized I left it on the table at the mercy of the kids who were cleaning up after we ate. I go back to the kitchen, no bottle. Look in the sink and dishwasher, no bottle. Poke through the trash, no bottle.
“Garrett, what did you guys do with my water bottle?” Predictable answer: I didn’t do anything with it.
I track down Sami. “Sami, where did you guys put my water bottle when you cleaned the kitchen.”
Again predictable, ”Nowhere Daddy, promise. I didn’t do anything with it.”
“Christian!” I was on the right path now. My oldest son (living at home) is famous for such things. “What did you do with my water bottle? And don’t say ‘nuthin’.”
“I didn’t touch it Dad. I didn’t even clean off the table.”
“Well isn’t that wonderful” I announce loud enough for all the kids to hear. “That water bottle just grew legs and ran away all by itself” I proclaim, marching down the hallway into our bedroom.
I walked in the bedroom and my wife was sitting on the little loveseat we have in our room. “Those kids… “ I said exasperated, “Nothing is safe around here. They…”
As I walk over to sit down on the far side of the love seat, I look over on “my side” where I typically set my stuff, like books, or my laptop or my… my… oh, my…guess what was sitting there? Yep, there’s my water bottle. And the only person who could have possibly put it there is yours truly.
So, like the good father I am, I get up, walk to the bedroom door… and as I close it, yell down the hallway, “I better not find out who took my water bottle!”
“You’re awful!” my wife said trying hard not to laugh, but not very hard.
Okay, now it's YOUR turn.
