Me: Hi mom
Mom: Hi sweetie. What are you up this weekend?
Me: Going to a wedding with El Cap.
Mom: Who is getting married?
Me: One of El Cap’s friends
Mom: Well, gee, it sure seems like everyone is getting married these days, doesn’t it?
(I can see where this is going)
Me: Argh. NO, mother. It really doesn’t.
Mom: Oh, well, are you and El Cap doing ok?
Me: Yes mother. Everything is fine. I have to go now.
VW: Hi, this is Joe Blah Blah with the VW Dealership calling about your car.
Me: Ok, so, what’s the damage? Ha ha
VW: Well, blah blah blah Throttle blah blah blah Adapter blah blah blah Timing Belt blah blah Serpantine Belt blah blah blah Valve a blah blah blah Casket blah blah blah Distributer blah blah blah Rooter, blah blah blah $1209.00.
Me: Uhm. What?
Me: Well, that’s just not something I can handle right now.
What is the minimum I have to do to get the car to pass Smog?
VW: Blah blah blah $378.00. But if that doesn’t work, then you will have to buy a new blah blah blah and that is around $700 plus labor. Then we can talk about the other items next time. But if you don’t take care of some of them, you can really damage your engine for good. Blah blah
Me: Ok. Thanks. I guess.
At least I ran 5 miles this morning. Thank God!
