Art of Manliness

I just wanna say for posterity that my car-related paranoia was not totally unwarranted! I had a mysterious flat today, which was fine because I just needed to drive home through town, but heyyy work is 100 miles roundtrip on the freeway, and that would have been sad times. Luckily I own an air compressor, so I re-filled my tire and went home. If it's flat again tomorrow morning I guess I'll take it to a tire place. SIGH.

But I did feel like a baller for having an air compressor. This is particularly great, because I actually didn't have my license on me (bad, I know...), nor my AAA card. But the REASON I didn't have my license on me was because I took my jacket off to help a guy load up furniture I sold on behalf of my housemate. And THEN I was running late to my appointment because the people who'd come to view the house parked me in, and I had to go find them (lol, of fucking course they did).

Please be okay, bb tire! YOU'RE BRAND NEW, GODDAMN IT.

In other words, I have achieved manhood today because I loaded furniture, used a Torx screwdriver for the first time, de- and re-installed a heavy, 1895-era door, and reinflated a tire. Mazel tov, self, mazel tov.
