After my car was run off the road this weekend several hundred miles from home, many concerned and faithful friends were interested in the return trip and if it would be possible to restore the car to its previous state of disrepair, so I mailed off a group message.
“Well, I went to see my mechanic and he said that the whole passenger side and front end is going to have to be replaced, but other than the suspension and the fact that something is leaking, he thinks he can probably salvage it for cheaper than it would be for me to buy a new car. So I’m going to let him do it. It will all work out somehow right? He was impressed with my duct tape work. At least that was how I interpreted it when he said under his breath, ‘Dear God, what is with this woman?'”
