Another frigid day in paradise. Twenty-seven below zero this morning. My car groaned and growled before it would start, complaining about having to get up and go today. I can't say I blame him. I would have rather stayed in bed myself.
The district cancelled school for K-12 classes, and that is the first time E-girl has complained about a snow day. Ever. She has a game tomorrow night, so she's worried about missing her practice tonight. They've won their last two games, by the way! Not bad for a first-year team. I missed both those games. Do you think I'm a jinx? I hope not, because I'm going tomorrow to cheer her on.
And yes, my car is a "him". Why shouldn't it be? Guys always call their cars "she", so why not? I haven't named him yet...haven't thought of an equivalent to Bessy or Betsy. Any suggestions, bloggers? What do you call a man-car?
