Being sick meant this week has been extremely busy, trying to catch up. But when I get to the weekend, I know how to have a good time!
Last night, friends invited Elaine and me to go see Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” at the Portland Center Stage. We literally had front row, center tickets; it was amazing to see a well-done play that close! Anyway, when it was over, the rear left tire on our Prius was flat as a pancake. A big nail was the culprit, but it showed how poorly our tires had worn. So today Aubrey and I got them replaced. At Les Schwab. And we were there for two and a half hours. Two and a half HOOOOOOUUUUUUURRRRRRRSSSSS! I mean sure, they have free popcorn, but come on; Aubrey’s five and a half.
She did much better than could be expected, actually.
Now, to make this story complete, I have to tell you about when we bought a used Toyota Echo a year and a half ago, the car I usually drive. The people we bought it from had put on these super dark windows and hot looking wheels, and people teased me quite a bit, saying it looked like a pimpmobile. I’m still wounded over that. It hurts on the inside, hurts real bad. But I’m strong.
At Les Schwab, they have this computer where you load in your car from their database, and then you can click on all kinds of different wheels and tires and color and you can lower your ride and see how awesomely cool it can become. So Aubrey killed a half hour or so doing that, and let me tell you people, SHE knows how to make a car look hot!
