or maybe just a gray and rainy day. Either way it turned out to be the perfect time to make a new friend.
I came home from a breakfast meeting to find a car disabled in the street right in front of our house, blocking the road.
And this car wasn’t just a little disabled, it had a broken tie-rod. It wasn’t going ANYWHERE!
And this car was’t just blocking a little bit of the road, it was COMPLETELY blocking the road.
It was cold and raining and no one who drove onto the scene was happy about being re-routed, so we invited the driver into our house to wait for the tow truck.
Over the next 1.5 hours we talked and laughed and drank coffee. Sunny filled our guest in on every aspect of our lives, showed her photo albums, drew her pictures. We watched the cars drive up, survey the situation and leave. Some seemed unfazed, other felt it important to honk at the driver-less car (we never did figure out why people honked). We chatted with the police officer who came by to take a look.
It was a great way to spend a dreary morning.
