It was a day like any other day as the best damn limo driver in town went to work — wink, wink! I arrived to pick up my fare, rang the bell and the door opened to find the biggest, meanest, evil demon of a dog with all of its teeth bared and fur standing straight up on end. Needless to say, I started to back away slowly before I crapped my pants but before I got too far, an angel of a woman ran onto the front steps. And with that, this snarling agent of hell became completely submissive and totally non-threatening — no limo driver for Rover to ravage!
Now when I said angel of a woman, yes that referred to her saving my bacon in a timely manner but also to the way that she looks. In this job, I’ve driven around famous actors, rock stars and professional athletes but this woman just seemed to have that natural glow, an aura even, surrounding her — drawing you closer to her.
Her long blonde locks fall to her shoulders, where I imagine her wings would emerge from back and her cute little white tennis visor on her head could have easily doubled as a halo. With the dog got squared away, we were all set to make our trip to wherever — in all the excitement, or terror depending how you look at it, I wasn’t too clear what our destination was. I politely asked Sera (her name) if she could just tell me the address so I wouldn’t have to pull over and check for myself — she gladly obliged and we carried on our way.
We arrive at a huge green space with a ton of people and dogs, playing games, sitting near the water etc. and there seems to be a banner overhead waving in the wind. Oh, I get it — it’s a family reunion I thought to myself but why the limousine? I ask Sera what’s going on today and she replied that it’s a dog lovers picnic and she was the organizer, a veterinarian!
The limo was paid for by her patients and picnic-goers as a thank you. Well that makes sense I said and I thanked her again for saving me from her pet — as I drove away, I began thinking maybe Sera stood for Seraphim, that would also make sense!
