Turn of the Road

  

 Charger's many fine points from YouTube.


Charles sighed deeply, gazing at his brand new, fresh off the show room floor, Fire Red Dodge Charger, lying in a field just off the road. Just a dent...I wouldn't mind that.  But this??

Taking that last U-bend on hwy. 238 and then skidding to miss a stray sheep had sent Fire Red spinning out and over onto weeds and grass of some rancher's field.

It did not matter now how many fluoride rinses and teeth extractions Dr. Charles Bentley, DDS, had done to buy Fire Red, now a totaled mass of metal, seat belts, open door, and shattered windows. 

He managed to "extract" his phone, and call 911. Sigh.



Note: there was no way I could insert "espionage" into this and keep a cohesive story.  Instead the Table of Elements will come into play. You will need to use a magnifying glass to read this.


The Periodic Table Of The Elements
This page provides names of the symbols.

Es = Einsteinuim**;  P = Phosphorous; I = Iodine; O = Oxygen; Na = Sodium; and, Ge = Germanium

**This is an element table, a mighty small one, named after Albert Einstein. It is metallic and radioactive with a life of 20.8 minutes.

Works for me. Why I put the periodic table here?  If you can figure that out, let me know.

The underlined and highlighted words are from May 2016, Wednesday Words. This had some challenges. We have a red car and I enjoy the thrill of a red car.

I misspelled "Albert" to "Alfred".  Dang.

  1. OUCH! Just last evening within mile of our place here in Florida on a straight road we saw a beautiful new 4 DR pickup wheels up just off the road. My thoughts were, did something pull out in front of him. I doubt it was a sheep, maybe some fool or big dog.???
    Anyway I HAD a periodic table.........
    Sherry & jack here in Florida...

    1. My husband is a scientist. He suggested it because he was watching some chemistry program. That is the best I can come up with.

  3. Ouch. Heartbreak.

    In chemistry class, I sometimes stare at the periodic table (which is always on the wall somewhere). I have various games that go with it.

  5. I have that same periodic table as a jigsaw. I believe it is also available as a shower curtain. Shame about Fire Red though.
