Today started off like any other day. I woke up.
And then on my way to an appointment my car started to give me attitude.
While half of me was swearing (“not now you piece-of-shit-excuse-for-a-car!), the other half was negotiating with the gods that be (“please let me get to my appointment. I swear. I’ll never . . . uh, swear again.”)
And then my car died. Which technically doesn’t hold me to any false promises of never swearing again, right?
Turns out that I ran out of gas. Now before you roll your eyes and label me dumb as a door knob, let me say that my gas gage is a little off.
Translation: it doesn’t work most of the time but works some of the time so I never know – never REALLY know – how much gas I have so I use the “0” button on the kilometre thingy except that I always forget to reset it.
Apart from that my car works perfectly fine.
The good news is that I’m a member of CAA and they came to my rescue with $10 worth of gas (procedure). With the price of gas these days, you’d think that filling up would come complete with insurance and an apple pie. (It doesn’t.) My $10’s worth of rescue gas got me as far as the next gas station, which luckily was across the street.
Yikes! Rough day, but you always have a way of spinning things into an amusing story! Hopefully, your tomorrow will start just like any other day…but without the added drama!

Thanks for the good wishes! If there’s one thing I’ve learned about life so far, it’s that whether you’re on a high or on a low, things always turn around. And look! Here we are today. It’s 5:15 a.m. and so far NO DRAMA! Things are looking good 🙂
