Okay, so I usually think of myself as not dumb, okay I think I’m smart. However, after taking my son to the orthodontist we returned home to be treated by a heavy downpour due to thunder storms. While we were sitting in my month old Model 3 “Darkshines”, waiting for a break in the rain, we listened to some music by Muse. I was hoping my son would like the sounds of Matt Bellamy and company. I have tickets to see Muse, the Drones world tour and I hoped my son would like to come after hearing some tracks. While sitting there listening to Hysteria, I opened the trunk lid as I had bought some groceries. My son asked quizzically, whether I should have opened the trunk. I said, “Well son, I think that the trunk lid is still covering the opening and the water should just run around the weather stripping.” Famous last words of an idiot, as the saying goes “It is better to be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.” After spending some more father and son time listening to the melodic sounds of Endlessly, I called my wife to let her know we were sitting in the car on the driveway and could use her assistance to get in the house dry. She dutifully came out with our big umbrella and escorted my son to the front door and came back for me. I went to the back and lifted the trunk lid to find a large puddle on the lower truck cover and in the lower trunk area. My heart sank and, I realized that my son is a lot smarter than me. Once the rain stopped and after many towels and cussing and cursing myself, I removed the liner. The bottom of the trunk was soaking wet. It took a dozen small towels to dry the bottom and the material. I’m fairly confident that the damage is minimal, just some minor damage to the liner and my ego.
