So this morning I dropped Sweetie off at her school, drove three more miles to drop Bud-duh off at his school and park the van (I have to walk him into class, hence I parked the van). When Tiny and I got back to the van, my key would not work! It wouldn't turn--as though I were using the wrong key. Nada. Zip. Nothing. All I could do was laugh; surely there was something wrong with my turning style.
After 1/2 an hour I finally called my friend to come get us and was relieved to discover her husband couldn't start the van either. He took the steering column apart and sprayed DW-40 on the turning mechanism and WHAH-LA! The key turned.
How random is that? Of all the things that could go wrong with my trusty $900 van, THAT is what decides to break. BIZARRE.
*GOOD TO KNOW #131:
Remember how your mom always said, "never leave home without clean underwear because you might get in a car wreck and have to be taken to the hospital"?! Well, that applies to "never leave home without a bra" as well. I had to be back at Sweetie's school for parent activity centers and didn't have time to go home and change first (as originally planned)! I'm just lucky something prompted me to put on my jeans and grab a sweater before I left the house--otherwise I'd be in my pajama bottoms and barely there t-shirt!!
