My adventures in the tunnel (And 100 Days of Kindness, Day 32)

You know those days where you wake up and you can feel it in your bones – this day was just not meant to be a good one for me – ?

I woke up with that feeling today, and boy! was I right on target.

On my way to work (Wakefield) from Colin’s (Newton) my car decided to break down on 93 North inside the tunnel. I was just trucking along, la di da da, on my way to work, when hmm… that’s weird… my car is just slowing down… maybe I should get into the right lane?… hmmm what is happening?… come on car, please make it to the end of the tunnel…

No such luck. Called the police and thank the dear Lord, the cop came so quickly! It was scary in that tunnel – cars were whizzzzzzzzzzing by me. Each one looked like they were going to slam into my car. Thank the dear Lord for the emergency tunnel tow truck the cop called, I owe the tow man a HUGE THANK YOU. So:

Mr. Tow Truck if you’re reading,

Thank you for rescuing me!

Hugs and kisses,

The tall frazzled freak :)

Anyway, to make a long and adventurous story short, my tow truck hero towed me to the Police Barracks in Southie to meet up with my hero of a boyfriend who thankfully has AAA (because I don’t. yay!). The AAA tow truck then towed my car to Colin’s auto body place in Newton where it still waits to hear its fate…

Just to add to the ridiculousness of this story, please keep in mind that my car inspection sticker expired in October plus the fact that my car is registered in MA with MA plates but I still have a NY license. I thought I was going to get arrested. But I didn’t. And I swear I’ll take care of all of that expired inspection sticker and MA license stuff asap.

Who decided to allow me to drive? Or to be an adult?

Ok enough of that. I decided to still be kind today even though today wasn’t necessarily kind to me. Meg’s school had an open house tonight to show off all the beautiful renovations they have done. I was invited and I wanted to show my support for the fabulous school (it’s amazing, an all boys school in Lawrence – Bellesini Academy). I went and it was so nice to see the boys giving tours – they are awesome! I saw a bunch of people who I haven’t seen in a while as well, so it was great to catch up.

On another note, I have three words for you: tomorrow is Friday.

Goodnight!
