Scary Mama Mobile
Yesterday, I went to get an oil change for my car.
As soon as the technician opened my hood, she jumped back and screamed. Literally.
"What's the matter?" I asked.
"You have a giant spider living under your hood!"
Oh. I thought. That's nice.
She grabbed her handy dandy water sprayer thing, and spent the next five minutes spraying the heck out of it. "There," she said when she was finished. "It drowned."
Okay. One less scary thing, I suppose.
After the routine checkup, it was determined that I needed to have my fuel injectors cleaned. Some kind of engine cleaner was added, after which I had to start my car, and give it gas.
Well, the technicians had told the next customer to pull up right behind me. This wasn't a good idea. Because as soon as I hit the gas, a massive amount of black smoke billowed out of my tail pipe. I watched in my rear view mirror as the customer opened her door and ran out of her car, choking and gasping for air.
Poor lady! "Sorry about that," I said after the smoke cleared.
Finally, it was determined that I needed a new battery (it was on 30%), and that my O2 sensor was not working and had to be replaced. When I got the bill for all the work that had been done, it was over $500!
I tell you, I have one very scary car!
Today's Bubba question of the day comes from Arni. She wanted to know where and to what era Bubba would go if he had a time machine.
Surprisingly, he did not have to think too long about that.
"I would find an unsolved crime in the present where a huge award would be given to someone who could help solve it. Then I would go to the past, to the scene of the crime, and see what happened. When I return to the present, I will report my findings. Justice will be served, and I will get a lot of money!"
Pretty amazing. How many of you would have thought to do that?
If you have any questions for Bubba, please put them in the comment section.
(And from yesterday's post, if you're curious as to how old I actually am, I'm 144. Minus 100.)
