Going in circles

Today I had two choices. I could stay home and do nothing or I could drive to Santa Barbara where a friend’s housemate is having a 21st birthday party.

I chose the better story.

Packed up a bag and my dog and started driving. At exactly halfway there, Perlie started asking to get out. It just so happened that there was a rest stop, so I pulled in. We walked and peed. Both of us. When I tried to start the car, nothing.

I tried again. Nothing.

Third time it rolled over. But the airbag light stayed on.

I checked the manual. It said I should seek professional help.

So we came home.

Three hundred miles. Five hours wasted. I did my part to ruin the environment for absolutely nothing.
