CAR WASH

I WAS ABLE TO LEARN A WONDERFUL LESSON ON KARMA TODAY. IT CAME BACK AROUND AND I WAS GRATEFUL. LET ME START AT THE BEGINNING..

A COUPLE MONTHS AGO WE WENT HOME FOR A QUICK VISIT. MY LITTLE SIS ABBY CAME TO ME AND WAS LIKE "COME WITH ME! MY CAR IS DISGUSTING CUZ WE DROVE IT TO ARIZONA, SO COME TO THE CAR WASH WITH ME!" ... "OK, LET ME TELL ANDREW I'LL BE RIGHT BACK." ..SO WE'RE WAITING IN THE CAR WASH LINE, LAUGHING AT A RETARDED SONG ON THE RADIO, WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I LOOKED AT THE CAR IN THE WASH AND NOTICED THE CAP RESTING ON THE LITTLE GAS DOOR. ABBY AND I BEGIN SCREAMING AT HER FROM IN THE CAR, ..COMPLETELY POINTLESS.. SO AFTER DEBATING WHAT WE SHOULD DO, WHILE NOT DOING ANYTHING, THE CAP GETS FLUNG FROM THE DOOR AND HITS THE WALL. SO I'M LIKE.. "I'M GOIN IN!!" I DASH IN THERE WITH THE WOMAN OBLIVIOUS IN HER CAR AS TO OF WHAT I WAS DOING.. WATER SPRAYING EVERYWHERE.. AND I QUICKLY TRY TO TWIST THE CAP ON BEFORE THE SPRAYERS HEAD BACK IN MY DIRECTION.. COMEONCOMEONCOMEON, DONE! I BOOK IT OUT OF THERE, ABBY & I SHARE A MOMENTARY LAUGH, UNTIL I DECIDED, WELL I SHOULD EXPLAIN TO HER WHAT HAPPENED SO SHE DOESN'T THINK I WAS VANDALIZING HER CAR OR SOMETHING... AND SHE WAS GRATEFUL.

..SO ANYWAY.. BACK TO TODAY. I DECIDED IT WAS TIME FOR AN OPTOMISTIC 'THE WEATHER'S ONLY GETTING BETTER' CAR WASH. AND AT THE END THE MAN BEHIND ME DROVE UP NEXT TO ME AND TOLD ME THE MAT IN THE BED OF MY TRUCK FLEW OUT WHEN I WENT THREW THE DRIER. BLESS HIS HEART, I WOULD HAVE NEVER KNOWN.

WHAT GOES AROUND.. COMES AROUND. :)

ANYWAY, WE'RE STILL EXERCISING PATIENCE WITH HEARING BACK FROM THE ANIMATION DEPARTMENT.. FINGERS ARE STILL CROSSED.

WELL WHETHER ANDREW GETS GOOD NEWS OR BAD NEWS, I PLAN ON CHEERING HIM UP THIS WEEKEND WITH A SUPRISE BIRTHDAY GET AWAY. IT'LL BE FUN.. DETAILS LATER. :)

ANYWAY, THAT'S ALL FOR NOW, HAVE A GOOD ONE!
