"There is something terrible wrong with my car," Mom told me as I stepped out of my house. She had just pulled out front.
"It is pulling to the right and making a terrible noise."
I walked over to check her car out and she had a massive flat tire and had been apparently driving on it for miles. The tire was shredded.
"Great!" I thought sarcastically as I proceeded to change the tire. It had begun to rain softly and soon I was soaking wet from the rain and sweat.
"Did I tear anything up?" Mom sheepishly asked as I walked back in the house, filthy.
"No," I replied. "But I need a shower."
Mom proceeded to tell me how she had to be in Auburn for the Doctor this Thursday. I volunteered to drive. I didn't feel comfortable with her driving that far by herself. We are going to eat at the Red Lobster afterwards.
