On Living in a Car

So eldest daughter, attorney/prosecutor notices she is having difficulty starting her VW Jetta and after a bit notices the “check engine” light is flashing.

So off she heads to the local VW dealer to have it checked out.

The technician lifts the hood and finds……….a nest.

“Some sort of animal is living under your hood Ma’am.”

Now I ask you – how could that be?  Daughter never lifts the hood.  She drives the car regularly; the engine gets hot.

Could someone have put the nest under the hood?  Not without access to the inside of the car and the hood locking mechanism.

So you got me.  Totally mystified.

.In any case no tiny furry or feathered thing was found


About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

  1. Hey, it seems some animal discovered the modernity, with using the car engine to get the eggs incubated. :-)) Best wishes, Michael

    That is actually quite common in the UK, Frank. But it is usually a lot colder here, so more understandable that nesting animals seek the heat of the engine. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I can’t say that I’ve ever heard of such a thing before. South Africa is so hot most of the year around, I doubt any animal would want the extra heat of being near an engine.
