“Well crap, that sucked,” Jen sighed as she put the tools away and closed the coupe’s trunk.
“Gonna really have to make up for it now,” Fuzz added.

“That’s the last time I let you watch Hot Fuzz. Or Smokey and the Bandit. Or anything else. Ever.”
Jen climbed in the passenger side of the Teal Smoke, buckled in, checked her OSH, and resigned herself to her fate.
