Yesterday after work I had a flat tire. It was 23 below zero with the wind chill! The wait for a tow truck was over 2 hours due to the onslaught of accidents that snowy weather brings. Yes, I was wondering if karma was involved--all my talk about good fortune, was this a feng shui dragon biting my butt? Well, the college police were kind enough to change my tire and get me on my way within 1/2 hour. How awesome is that?! I’m going to write a letter to the campus police to let them know how wonderful they are and how grateful I am that they were willing to offer assistance on such a horrendous day!
So I bought 4 new tires today to the tune of $466.50. I had a fine time waiting for them to be put on because I read a bunch of magazines. You see, I didn’t have a pile of laundry staring at me (usually it doesn’t stare, it threatens mutiny) or dishes to wash. All I could do was read some garbage about the latest styles I will never wear and learn 50 ways to perform strange, intimate man-pleasing things. Hmm, it’s like porn in written form. Available at your local newsstand. Or ask your 16-year-old daughter who has a subscription. Why don’t men’s magazines boast “50 ways to make her sing like a jailbird while imprisoned in your bedroom”? Anyway, I got a real education and new tires. What a great day!
Oh, and here's the best part: When I got home there was an email waiting for me-I won a dyed tree from Heidi at Craft-nosis.
Sweetness! I still got it, baby! These trees are adorable and come in tons of colors. That totally made my day!
