What's in your trunk?

On Sunday Girlfriend and I went to buy dog treats/food for both of our pooches who were needing these respective things. I got B a bag of his favorite "Thanksgiving in a bag" treats (turkey, cranberry and oats-what's not to love?) and she got Q a big bag of fancy-schmancy food since it's cheaper at the locally owned independent store in my town than the larger corporate chain by her. I'm not judging her food choice for Q...B eats the same expensive brand-and he ate it first so there. Anyway, I tossed it in the back seat (on top of the dog seat protector of course) because the trunk was full of random stuff. As we went around a corner everything shifted and we heard th-thump-THUMP! Here is the conversation that followed:

Girlfriend: What was that?!?!
Me: What was what?
Girlfriend: That noise just now from the trunk. What do you have back there?
Me: Just the basics-B's travel crate and an emergency car repair/tool kit. Oh, and plywood. That's probably what the last thump was.
Girlfriend: (laughing) Wow.
Me: What?
Girlfriend: (still chuckling) I thought I was gay.
Me: Um, you totally are. AND we have already established that your car is WAY gayer than mine.
Girlfriend: (Ignoring me) Wait, what is the plywood for?
Me: It's the leftover scraps from the plywood and cinderblock bookshelf I made for work.
(silence)
Me: That didn't help my case at all just now, did it?
Girlfriend: Nope, just made you gayer. I actually think rainbows might be coming out of the tailpipe as we speak.

In conclusion: When trying to argue that you are not a living breathing lesbian stereotype, don't explain why you have plywood in your trunk...especially if it's from a very gay project.

I love the rainbows coming out of your tailpipe comment, if you could figure that out we would no longer need rainbow stickers or subarus! My trunk has a lot of crap in it but Id say the only lesbian items would be my kitty litter (perfect for gettin "unstuck" from ice) and extra-super-duty jumper cables. Both of which I have used to help plenty a boy out by the way!

too funny - if you look in mine all you could think was dog freak, sports mom, though I'm not sure what the set of horseshoes would lead you to believe.

LilliGirl-horseshoes lead me to believe you can drink all day on a Saturday and still win the game...not judging, just saying...
