I bet you are wondering what the heck I'm doing posting an entry in the middle of a work day. Well, take a close look at the picture, it should clue you in real quick. Yup! On my way to work this morning, my car broke down! Sucks Big Time!
Now, the "Rebecca of Sunny Broke Farm" side of me is trying hard to look at the positive side of things. The breakdown occurred right in front of a service station. It could have happened while I was on Laurel Canyon which would have been an absolute nightmare. What really sucks is that it is more than likely my timing belt.
I hear my brother, Andy, screaming as he reads this. You see, he warned me over a year ago when I got my clutch fixed that I should have my timing belt replaced. I didn't ignore him. I swear! I got an estimate then and even got one last month when I had my oil changed. I was toying with the idea of taking it in this Saturday to have it fixed. However, the cheap, tight-wad, ostrich side of me really wanted to stick my head in the sand for another month.
Well, "Father Time", stepped in and said Screw You! Zap! Powey! Kaboom! Now, I sit here worrying that I've done serious damage to my car that will cost me an arm and a leg. If they would accept my thighs as payment, I would be happy but I don't think that's gonna happen.
I thought about taking a cab to work but am not sure what I'd do if the service station called to say they want my first born child as down payment, especially since I don't have one to offer up. I figured crying, hissy fits at work would be frowned upon. As such, I decided to take a vacation day.
Probably for the best since I have a final exam tonight in my Investments class that I am ill prepared for. Ugggg!!! Tell Rebecca to shut up already! I really hate her some days.
