Because Just Being Minutes Late Wasn't Good Enough Today
I walked out of the house late for work as usual today. I knew it got very cold last night, but I hadn't thought about how that would mean window-scraping this morning. So, I stood there scraping my windows so I could see to get to work, even though I was already late. Finally, I drove off. But the car seemed sluggish and there was a funny noise. I pulled over just up the street from my house and went to look at the tire that seemed like it might have a slow leak. It seems the leak has become less slow. The tire is totally flat. So, now I sit here blogging while I wait for my brother to come rescue me. He's a mechanic, so he's extra-good at this kind of rescuing.
