Conversation I Had with the Dude at the Auto Parts Store Who Replaced My Broken Windshield Wiper Today, a.k.a. My New Favorite Person

Auto Dude: That tractor trailer truck is driving on the sidewalk.
[Pause while we both observe the tractor trailer truck which was, indeed, driving on the sidewalk. That driver must have really wanted some Bruegger’s.]
Auto Dude: That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.
Me: You work on Monroe Ave., and that’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen?
Auto Dude: That’s pretty bad, isn’t it?
Me: You should spend some more time looking out the window.

Even though I had the wipers replaced, there’s still a piece of broken wiper stuck in the ice on the corner of my windshield. After the hour-and-a-half long project that was getting my car out of the driveway this morning, I didn’t have the energy to pluck it out.

I need to buy a plane ticket to go somewhere where the sun always shines.

    Thought 1: we should all look out the window more often.

    Thought 2: wait a few years and you won’t have to go somewhere where the sun always shines. Well, maybe not always shines, but that is always warm.

    Thought 1: Wise words.

    Thought 2: Perhaps, but I don’t want to wait that long.

    Isn’t it great the way you can go to the store and by wipers or a battery and they put them in for you:)I love it!

    Please at least tell me you didn’t go to work today… that you’re still closed, so that the long process of leaving the driveway wasn’t for work.

    Momster, YES, because I just don’t want to learn how to put on a windshield wiper.

    Tanita, I did! I’m in charge: my number one job duty is to show up.
