Quiz time, mortals! Can you identify this object?
If you guessed “housing for automobile side-view mirror”, you are correct! This particular one is no longer affixed to the humans’ vehicle. Why? It was, I snicker to say, a case of Good News/Bad News.
The Good News is that the human male remembered to take the auto in for its scheduled safety inspection. I know that I, for one, will sleep better knowing that when we are out and about, my Sigyn is riding in a vehicle with working brakes and steering.
The Bad (and Funny) News that when the dealership was running the very dirty vehicle through its complimentary car wash, their automated equipment ate a large patch of paint off the driver’s side mirror. They apologized profusely, but the human male still had to get up early to take the vehicle in to have the free replacement installed.
Now, what to do with this damaged old one? I’ve been thinking about it for a while, and all I have come up with so far is “candy dish for a demolition-derby themed birthday party.” If you have a better idea (the mischiefier, the better), please let me know in the comments!
