Rest in peace old friend
Last Monday my car officially took its last breath and died forever. I was out shopping and had finished spending money so I got in my car and tried to turn it on. It was hard to get it started so I thought "oh great, I need a new battery". So as I was driving down McKellips I called my parents just in case the car died on the way home. As I was talking to them, I looked in my rear view mirror and saw a huge cloud of smoke coming from the exhaust. I pulled over and told them to come pick me up. As I was sitting there a boy came over to see if I needed any help and then yelled a few profanities when I showed him what happened when I turned the car on. My parents took me home and we got a tow truck in the morning and sent it to Gunnels. They said that I had blown the head gasket and that it would cost more to fix it than what the car is worth.
So this has been my ride to work for the past week. The weather has been fairly nice lately so its not so bad. Plus my job is only half a mile from my house.
And thank you times infinity to Mom, Dad, and Grandma for each letting me take their car to school. I love you all.
