Dirt McGurt!

One afternoon in Burlington, Vermont, back when I pedaled insurance for my meager living, I pulled over convinced I was getting a migraine. I pulled over into a crowded parking lot that housed the parked cars of, among others, Starbucks patrons.

I rescheduled all of my day's appointments then sat in my car, a little hazy and tired. I was sort-of slumped down in my seat, minding my own business, trying to decide whether I was getting better or worse, when I heard a rustling sound.

I looked in my rear-view mirror to find a woman standing at my rear windshield, tracing her fingers into the film of dirt that had been left on my vehicle, compliments of Vermont's many dirt roads. She finished and walked around the side of my car and began to climb into the SUV parked directly next to me. Half-shocked but thoroughly entertained, I surveyed her work, then her appearance: 20 to 25 years old in fancy yoga-ish-Saturday Starbucks-run getup. 

As she put on her seat belt, I waited patiently and deliciously for her to realize her victim was actually in this filthy car, arms shrugged up in the air. As her shocked and embarrassed face met mine, my almost-concerned and accusatory expression asked, "What are you? A twelve year old boy?"


  1. I'm sorry I turned my ringer off...I would' ve loved hearing you tell this story. Thanks for at least putting it on here!

    Hello everyone, I am Evans Torttor from USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to MIKE LARRY for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organizations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Esther to MIKE LARRY LOAN FIRM and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Esther said, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00 USD; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 3% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact MIKE LARRY LOAN FIRM. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on {}
