Don’t ask me how I did it (because I still don’t know) but I managed to clip a curb three blocks from my mom’s house, pop two tires, and ruin a rim. What I initially thought would be a simple tow-and-swap quickly became a massive headache as I realized that no one in Knoxville had my car’s rim in stock.
This means that I’m stuck in Tennessee for the next 48 hours. I feel like the world’s worst driver.
And I have nothing but the clothes on my back, my camera, my laptop, my cell charger, the puppies, and my mother’s house to crash at.
I went to Walgreens and bought the essentials: a 3-pack of grannie panties, a toothbrush, and contact solution. Should get me through the next two days, right?
While I waited for the tow truck, my mom pulled up and we snacked on Fritos.
I wasn’t very hungry for dinner… Just in a foul mood from my mess-up. But this was tasty: a baked sweet potato, steamed rainbow chard, and rice cakes with hummus.
Since my mom’s friend Patty lives with her, I’m bunking in mom’s bed. I joked that it’s the $500 sleepover – and it really is. I guess it could be worse; it’s a fun excuse to spend more time with MomHTP.
Time to crawl in.
Aww, no!! I’m so sorry to hear about the flat. But at least you have a reason to get some extra mom time in. 😉
