Funny Story except it is true

I am standing around the house I hear a loud boom with floor vibrations I ask if everyone is ok because I thought someone fell flat on their settee Everyone says we're ok what was that?? After much investigation We found that my tire had exploded into shreds I am considering suing the company Never used spare tire, only fourteen years old Should not have exploded like that!!

Isn't fourteen years old a long time though? Oh, well, what do i know about tires. I have had two blowouts on the freeway in my life. Be grateful you were not on the road!

Glad you weren't near it. I enjoyed the verse, not the disaster.

An exploding tyre can be very dangerous Doris. I dare say it has perished over the years. Many thanks for your kind words. < I am fine, how are you and yours? > Have a lovely weekend :)
