Remember when I logically predicted that this would be MY year? My fave number is 13, I started this year - 2013 - by getting 13th place in a race, then I turned around and won a buncha groceries mainly because I didn't want to clean my house. Add to those things our freshly acquired no-named black cat, and I'm the luckiest girl around!
But wait! There's more!
I broke a mirror. YES! Oh, I absolutely maimed it!
It was a couple of weeks ago. We'd had a snow day that day. By the evening, I was delirious with cabin fever and ventured out into the blizzard only to get into a nasty car crash!
No I didn't.
I went out to run a quick errand, and when I returned home I clipped the driver's side mirror on the driver's side garage. WHAT?! STU-pid! I BLAME THE WEATHER.
I have never, in 33 or so years *COUGH* as a driver, had so much as a scrape / scratch / fender bender. Okay, I've killed a couple of batteries and once took out a Sonic tray with a truck. But other than THAT stuff...
Alas, there it was, the mirror, or rather, pieces of the mirror scattered about the garage floor. For the past two weeks, it's been held in place with duct tape, rounding out a nice White Trash ensemble for the Civic. But today, that all came to an end. I took her to The Shop. The duct tape masterpiece was removed, and we have a boring factory mass produced driver's side mirror again.
The luck just keeps a-piling up! As more proof of that, of our vehicles that actually have mirrors, this was the cheapest to fix.
How lucky is that, right!? It's already working!!
