it went like this: the rad blew and we were stranded on the side of the road surrounded by forest when a nice young family stopped and took us to winnipeg. pot brownies. we roamed an unfamiliar city at three am and then found a hotel, squishing two girls with the same name into a tiny single-sized bed. walked through the rain for hours on end to get a ride back to the place we temporarily called home.
then my rad was repaired and i spent a night sleeping in odd places in another unfamiliar place. the dogs loved the adventure.
the poo thing was, the rad repair wasn't done properly and all my transmission fluid leaked out. so when i trekked two day across the province i killed my tranny and now she makes a humming noise when i drive.
and the point is, i love my car and all her absurdities. the dent in the passenger door, the dent in the trunk, the peeling paint on the roof, the muffled speakers, the dog fur that has become a permanent feature. and especially the humming tranny.
i'm off to toronto this weekend.
