Is Someone Pulling My Leg?

I’m a natural-born skeptic.  I question all premises that seem too good to be true.

I was backing up and the truck came around the corner from behind the hedge.

I was backing out of my parking space at work when the farm truck came around the blind corner.

This was not a small dent.


A friend was going to put this up on a lift to see if the dent could be popped out easily.

I had another repair for the list. I wasn’t worried about it because 1.) my friend said she could fix it and 2.) if she couldn’t it was covered under insurance at work.

On Tuesday.
On Thursday.

Two days later the dent was gone.  Other remnants of the incident like scrapes on the bumper remain but the volleyball-size indentation was no longer there.

The car has not been out of my possession and I didn’t have it fixed. How did that happen?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. That’s pretty amazing. I’m guessing that it is plastic. I have heard that using a hair dryer (the heat) will pop out dents in the plastic. Maybe that’s what happened to your car – heat from the sun? Or just maybe the angle of the indentations encouraged it to heal itself?
