I was sitting at home yesterday morning when the telephone rang and my cousin asked "Do you have the scanner on?" Yes, in my family, we hear all the latest news (accidents, weather, etc) using the police scanner. I told him that I did not and was told "Well, there is a camel loose near Wal Mart". He went on to say that the dispatcher had to tell the responding officers two times what they were going to catch because the officers kept going "What was it?" "Did you say a camel?" Okay, so having a camel roaming through the mountains is sort of unusual, but the Lewis and Clark Circus (small circus from South Carolina) is in town for two nights which actually made it sort of make sense.
Needless to say the rest of my day was a bit brighter because I kept thinking about the whole situation. If the camel had actually caused a car to wreck (which thankfully it didn't), it may have caused the insurance company to dispute the claim because saying 'deer was in the road and I hit it' or even "someone's cattle got out and I was trying to miss them" sounds much more plausible than "I was trying to avoid hitting a camel." Yes, it takes very little to amuse me these days. Just wanted to share.

OMG! That is so funny.

As far as the insurance company, you should have seen the looks on the insurance adjuster's face when they looked at our car to give me an estimate on damage and tried to figure out how the damage occurred to our car without any paint transfer, just this round dent. This was an accident when their client's wheel came off their car and bounced across 3 lanes of traffic to hit our car (passenger front wheel well) when we were sitting at a red light on the cross street. That took over 1/2 hour to explain.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!
