For dramatical purposes, as we speak I am waiting at Starbucks for a tow truck.
Yep. Right now. This very instant. Well, probably (hopefully) not this instant as you read it, but you know.
This is supposed to be my trying-to-look-worried-and-anxious face.
But let's face it. I'm not that worried or anxious at all. I only said that because I think that's how people normally react in these kinds of situations. Mostly it's just garnering me some pretty weird looks from the people sitting nearby. They must think I'm certifiably crazy holding that expression. Sitting all by myself. Staring at my laptop. Maybe I should carry a sign. "It's okay. I do this for a living" or "Don't worry, I'm a blogger."
Yeah. That would do it.
Well since I now have your rapt attention, as you are no doubtedly waiting for my explanation as to why I need my car towed, you are about to be met with a very anti-climactic story.
I was driving along to Starbucks this morning, you know, for my morning coffee, and after I left (coffee in hand), I walked back to my car and started it up. No problem. I was even running a little early for my 9 AM bio class. Which never happens, by the way. Never.
But then. Oh, but then. My car refused to move out of park. A small child plopping itself on the ground at a grocery store with crossed arms and a frown on its face comes to mind. This was a similar experience. My car being the child, if you didn't catch that.
She (my car - her name is Abbey if you were wondering. You probably weren't. Oh well) sat in the Starbucks parking lot from 9 AM until 5:30 PM when we finally got her onto the truck. I wasn't waiting for the tow that whole time, mind you! I was in class for most of the day, and luckily the school is (relatively) right next to the Starbucks I visited.
So, that is why I am here waiting for a tow truck; for the first time in my life, at that. Should we celebrate? My tow-cherry has been popped. Maybe some champagne?
And that, my friends, is my exciting story for the day. Hopefully yours wasn't this crazy! xx
