I Have Four New Tires!!!
So I was way past due for a new set of tires...the old tires made my car shimmy and shake like Beyonce...."I'm a single lady, I'm a single lady..."
Okay...anyway.....so yesterday afternoon when I got in the car to leave work, I thought hmmm what is that smell? Smells like new tires....I quickly dismissed it.
But this morning when I cranked the car up and the "low tire pressure" alarm came on again...I sighed and turned in at the Exxon station.
Me: Trent when are my new tires going to be in?
Trent: I put them on yesterday. Couldn't you tell how much better your car rode? (They forgot to reset the low pressure alarm)
Well, as a matter of fact, blah blah blah blah.
Long story short, sweet David ordered and paid half of what was owed on them. I wrote the check out for the rest and was on my merry way.
And....I was so excited. I don't know when I have been so excited. I wasn't this excited when David brought me that bracelet back from a hunting trip to Colorado...
At work I told everybody "Ive got new tires, I've got new tires, la la la la"
And then a light bulb went off in my head.......you know you are getting old when you get really excited about new tires. More than jewelry. More than a movie and dinner. More than that new blush you ordered from your Mary Kay representative. And (are you ready?) more than that stuff you bought at the auction.
But still you get the picture. I was excited. And I'm old...well my body is old...my heart is still young...except for the tire thing...my heart is still young.
