Lisa: street smarts

Q: When is a good time to take my car to the dealership downtown for an oil change that is 3000 miles overdue?

A: 7:00 am, before the streets are plowed, during a blizzard.

Bonus points: Remind the service guy that a part needs to get installed. When he asks you what part, tell him you have no idea. Watch while he looks up the record of your last visit, where someone painstakingly typed in all caps, "CUSTOMER STATES SHE HIT SOMETHING VERY HARD, AND NOW THERE IS SOMETHING DANGLING DOWN BY THE TIRE. SHE SUGGESTS JUST TRIMMING THAT PART OFF BECAUSE MAYBE IT ISN'T IMPORTANT."

Hee hee hee. That made me laugh out loud. Also good to do: wait 15 months between oil changes.

This post made me laugh out loud too. Our car-fixing friend removed a dragging piece out from under our car and he said it really wasn't all that important. So you weren't totally out there with that suggestion. And aren't you off work today? Are you insane getting up before 7 am on your day off? You should be sleeping all you can. Before it's too late.

Your jugs are the meat-iest of them all. And they'll just get meat-ier.

That sounds sort of sick.

It also sounds like beef jerky. Or maybe those little sausage things.

Mal has problems. Your breasteses are fine.
