Yesterday the Cinderoo and I motored to Myrtle Beach. It is a leisurely 8 hour drive from our home in Knoxville. It was a clear and cool morning as we headed southeast on the interstate through the Smoky Mountains north of Asheville, NC.
As the temperature dropped while driving through the mountains, it caused a glare as the sunlight hit the windshield. Apparently, there was a film on the inside surface of the windshield that really created a glare when the sunlight hit the cold surface. This made it difficult to see!
Me: I cleaned the windshield! I don't understand this glare!
Her: What did you clean it with?
Well, you cleaned the outside of the windshield---not the inside where the film is
I didn't think I had to clean the inside
It is the inside that is dirty
But it looked clean when I was cleaning the outside
You should have cleaned the inside
I know that now, but at the time it looked clean
You can't always tell just by looking
OK, next time I'll clean the inside too
When you told me you were going to clean the windshield, I thought you knew to clean the inside
Well, I didn't. Can we drop this and move on to another topic?
Next time you think the windshield needs cleaning, let me know and I will clean it.
