It was a stupid adult morning, is what I'm saying.
So! Susie and I decided to go to Target and look for a shrug for her to wear over her sleeveless dress at Brian's graduation ceremony tomorrow night. We headed happily out the door, got in the car, pulled out of the parking space, and realized we were sort of listing to the left.
|I think we diagnosed it correctly
We'd been having trouble with that particular tire for a while, so I wasn't too surprised. "I'll let Daddy deal with it when he gets home," I told Susie, because I'm good at acting helpless like that. "Let's take Theo's car instead!"
Remember? Theo and Anna are both overseas right now. We've been stuck babysitting her pickup truck and his car since September. But, hey, now we could benefit from that!
So Susie and I trooped down to the road, where Theo's car was parked, and got in. I turned the key. Nothing happened. I mean, NOTHING. I tried again. Nada. I considered trying Anna's pickup, but I was feeling jinxed by this point and didn't want her truck to catch it.
I'm logical like that.
So we went back inside and I called Larry. Because, well, helpless. I left 4 voicemail messages and then gave up. Susie and I ended up sitting around (me knitting) and listening to Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, because we couldn't think of anything else fun to do and we couldn't move anyway because we were weighted down by humidity.
That is too a thing.
|What I really needed
Larry finally called back and told me to call AAA and the tow truck driver showed up and I tipped him way too much just to tow my car a mile away, but I don't even care because the air conditioning has finally kicked in and I feel as though I have a whole new lease on life.
But that accounting course might still have to go...
