Yesterday, the moon sent super rays to the earth and zapped me smack dab in the middle of my chest and I ended up with an anxiety attack so bad that poor husband thought I might be temporarily insane. He was hoping it was temporary anyways.
I was fine. Then I wasn’t. Just like that. I realized in the middle of sifting through the multiple client ‘To Do’ piles that I had a ridiculous amount of work errands in town and no vehicle. My skype and phone was blowing up with ‘fires’ that needed put out, all of which required me to get in my invisible car and leave the house. I lost my shit.
Unfortunately, Husband had just walked into my office when it happened and I somehow made it his fault that I left my ‘ride’ at the auto mechanic shop. I screamed. Then I cried. Then I told him to fix it or I was going to lose my mind.
So he lets me drive his grandfathers truck, that he has spent 8 years tearing down and fixing up.
I’m not sure what in the hell is up with the motor, but it has a whole lot more ‘get up and go’ than what I’m used to.
Zero to 60 with just a little tap of the foot. I tried the top of the gas pedal and the bottom of the gas petal. I took my shoe off and tried it barefoot. No matter what I did, the second I got close to the gas petal it would shoot forward like I was in some kind of drag race. I threw gravel and left skid marks at every stop sign in town.
Completely cracked me up every time. I felt like a six year old who stole the family truck.
I later had a friend ask me, “What the hell? Was that you that flew by the house in the white truck today?” HAHA. It only goes slow in neutral. Seriously. I’m lucky I made it home.
Reverse at 60mph is more than unsettling. I nearly took out the flag pole at the post office, and briefly thought, that with all the spinning out and laughing like a crazy woman I would get pulled over for a DUI.
From crazy freaking out screaming mad to crazy laughing and feeling like a teenager out tearing up the backroads.
Thank you Husband for changing my day!
I never did go back to the computer, I turned off my skype and phone and the world didn’t end. It was perfect!
