Subject:Things that make me grumpy
Time:12:23 am
This evening I drove over to the city to have dinner with P and some of his friends. Parking was abysmal, so I opted to spend eight bucks for the restaurant's valet lot. Sometimes convenience is a beautiful thing.

About two minutes after I sat down, the valet showed up next to me with an apologetic look on his face. "Excuse me. Is there a trick to starting your car?"

"No. Will it not start?" (It's a silly question, I know.)

I followed him out to the lot and was not the least bit surprised to find out that he was right. I explained what was happening, and then grabbed the hammer from the back seat and whacked the starter a few times. No dice. I swore under my breath, and we pushed the car into a parking space. One ten dollar tip later and I was back at the table.

I fully expected to be towing the car home, but after dinner a few more whacks with the hammer were enough to get her running. I guess I'll be back at the mechanic Monday morning.

Apparently it's time for a bigger hammer, or maybe a new starter. <g>
