Today, I was already bummed about having to work a half day. I mean, really, what can you get done in a HALF DAY. I decided to take my camera, grab some coffee, and head to church. Unfortunately, I never made it past the coffee. My car started making a knocking noise. Earlier that day it had been making the same noise. However, this time it got louder and then sounded like it was dying (literally). My original thought was that I must have a flat tire. Managed to drive the car into the first turn I saw which thankfully was a neighborhood and park it. Jumped out to examine tires only to see… NOTHING. Popped the hood (like I know what in the world to look for….) and could tell the engine was hot. Then put the hood back down because, well, I knew I had no idea about engines. Tried turning the car back on and although it would start and shift into gear, it would NOT move. Tried it a few more times with no results.
THANK GOD FOR A CAR PHONE CHARGER
Whenever there is an emergency, my phone is guaranteed to be dead.
I had my roommates girlfriend come pick me up. I was parked in front of one of those houses that it seemed like people just kept coming out of. There were about four cars in front and a pair of the most ferocious sounding pit bulls I’ve ever heard in my life. Like, they kept sounding like they were turning on each other. There was a dog warning sign on their yard. I wanted to yell “no shit, really?”
When my ride came I of course gather up everything out of car. Because I am stressed, I panic about where my phone is (its in my hands). Which I realize when it slips out and breaks into three pieces. Thankfully, I don’t have a flimsy iphone that breaks at the drop of a hat. My battery managed to pop out though and fall underneath my un moveable car. I literally lay flat on the ground and reach with all my might for this tiny black square. I was able to retrieve it.
Once leaving the car, I came back to the house. I had to cancel work because I could not get there. I am seriously about to be fired. So I probably need to go ahead and start a plan B, as plan A is going up in smoke. My friends have been amazing though with rides and letting me borrow their car.
I feel like I am suffocating though.
My camera,dog, and I took a walk where I photographed a lot of flowers. Here are some of the pictures below. I was happy with how a lot of them turned out.
