Mrs. Brightside

My week began with a flat tire. Ordinarily I'd think it was a bad sign for things to come. But for some reason -- I just keep thinking about the positive.

It happened at on my way to the "gym" (a.k.a. my parents' basement) at 6 am. When I got out of the car I heard a whooshing noise only to find a piece of metal in my tire. It took about 10 minutes for it to completely deflate.

On the bright side:
  1. It happened on my way to my parents' house (less than 5 minutes from home) and not on my way to work during rush hour traffic.
  2. As you may recall, my mom had foot surgery and thus isn't driving. I just left my car there and took hers for the day.
  3. My mom's surgery also means she's at home today when she'd normally be at work. Thus, she was able to wait for Triple A so I didn't have to.
  4. My CR-V had a full size spare tire and instead of one of those donuts. Not sure how much that matters, but it seemed like a positive thing to me!
Hey, life could be a lot worse.


  1. That's my friend, drinking a full glass of water! I'm sorry to hear about the tire but it sounds like you were able to roll with it.

    P.S. I wish I would wake up at 6 a.m. to hit the gym!

  2. Well that's great that it wasn't too much of an inconvenience!

  3. What would you do without your mother. She is awesome!!
