Wash wash wash your car ...

Cheerleaders really have no business washing cars.

Cuz really? They're not very good at it.

What they are good at is ...

* Giggling.

* Dancing.

* In other words, shaking their booty.

* Throwing water at each other.

* Soaping each other -- thoroughly!

* And attracting more cars than I thought humanly possible.

Why, you ask?

Oh, foolish mortals. Do the math:

Cheerleaders + tee-shirts + water = $$$$$$$$$$

Oh, the cheerleader carwash. What a beautiful thing it is.

*insert laughter -- bordering on hysteria -- here*

Why, yes, the Roo-girl's cheer team DID wash cars this weekend.

Which explains why MY back is killing me this morning -- several days later.

What? You think the cheerleaders did all the work? No, indeed.

They did the soap-soap-soaping of the vehicles (but mostly of each other), and a parent or two manned the rinsing spray hose (although it was brave of them to stand that close to teenage girls armed with soapy, wet sponges).

Then a bunch of the rest of us were given towels with which to dry said vehicles. In my three-hour shift, I firmly believe I wiped down about 500 cars -- and a firetruck.

And wiping down they needed, too, since, when they got to us dryers, there were still little remnants of tree whatevers and bird pooty.

Oh, and soap suds.

But everyone knows that when cheerleaders wash your car, you have to get a REAL carwash later, right?

Because it's really only about giggling, dancing, soap suds and wet tee-shirts.

I think it doesn't matter how bad the economy gets, cheerleaders + soap + water will ALWAYS equal mucho dollars...

I'm speechless over the fire truck.

*Snicker* Well, I was always the girl that they sent to the side of the road with a sign to attract more *customers*... It's taken me a long time to be ashamed of that. LOL.

(But at least the kids had fun, right??? :)

Let me know next time. I'll be sure to let my car get nice and dirty. On the other hand, that is kind of a far piece to go for a car wash. Oh well. It's getting too clod for cheerleader washes up here, in Chicagoland.

Jaina said...

Lol, that is too funny. That's so neat that the firemen brought their truck to be washed to support the squad...usually they wash their own trucks. Or maybe they were just really young firemen and wanted to hang out with the cheerleaders...

nikki said...

Hey, at least they weren't out washing cars in bikinis. That would have been twice the work.

thegunchick said...

hmmm... I have some vague memories of doing that a few times myself... Now what I want to know is: how come the guys football team isn't out there doing this kinda thing, huh?

I always try to get Mr. Husband to stop for road-side fundraiser car washes since I used to do them as a band geek, and he always refuses saying that it will just cause him MORE work later. *sigh*

Well "I" say you should have had the firemen from that fire truck out there washing vehicles.....shirtless. And then you could have taken pictures of them and then.....what??

Burfica said...

oh praise god none of them were wearing white.

abritdifferent said...

Hahaha! I was just thinking the same thing as Burfica. And the firetruck? That's a bit weird. Not that I'd be turning it down myself or nothing...

Momisodes said...

Car washes and girls are a gold mine.

In H.S. I had to do what Judith Shakes did.

Looking back, tsk tsk tsk.

Rachel said...

Janet, have I mentioned lately that I adore you and that spunky little Roo Girl?

I, however, would be much more inclined to pull the hell over for some hot firemen washing a car... I'm just sayin'

anglophilefootballfanatic.com said...

Sadly, I cannot help but think of Bring It On. And, then imagine you in the uniform.... :)

Pamela said...

they were so hot the firefighters were called? (:

karisma said...

Kaytabug said...

At least she didn't wear a white t-shirt!!!

robinellablog said...

I wasn't a good car washer as a cheerleader or a band geek. Must be a teenager thang. How did they sucker the parents into this? Our parents never helped, except to be money collectors and fuss at us to put our shirts back on.

OHmommy said...

They washed the fire truck... wow. My daughter always make me stop for a car wash when the girls are shaking their signs for everyone to see.

Cute.
