Today I did something I haven’t done in a while……
I broke down.
Don’t get the wrong idea: it was my car that broke down not me! I was an unwilling passenger to the whole thing!
So there we were on the hard shoulder, the engine would still run (somehow I find that insulting, like the car was taunting me!!!) but no gears. Nothing at all.
Not what you want to happen at any time but at 4.00pm on the Thursday before Easter Friday???
Fortunately we rang the recovery company just in time and so I did something I hadn’t done in a while: I went for a ride in a tow truck! Which was much better than the ‘hilarious’ suggestions of my friends whom I’d texted my woes to. These suggestions included, but were not restricted to: skiing, biking, swimming or *GASP* walking home!!!
Yes everyone thought it was very funny, which I for one just couldn’t appreciate!
Strangely though while actually inside the tow truck we passed someone else broken down on the hard shoulder.
What did I do???
What do you think I did?!?!?
I laughed, of course!!! :-P
