There Will Be Blood

My husband's car decided to have a tantrum yesterday (as cars so often do - especially cars that are almost paid off), so he took mine to work this morning.

So. I'm without a car today, on this FUN FRIDAY.

Okay, I realize that this is a First World problem (the kind of problem that only people who live in First World countries understand, i.e. broken air conditioning units, broken fake nails, broken get the idea). The rational part of my brain realizes that I shouldn't be complaining, that I'm sitting here in the air conditioning having just eaten an entire breakfast of eggs, bacon, and pancakes (because it's Fun Friday! I get bacon! Okay, who am I kidding, I eat bacon almost daily. I love bacon - sue me.) while I peruse the Internet while my child is distracted by Curious George.

I get it.

But the irrational side of my brain just registered that I DRANK MY LAST COKE LAST NIGHT. I reached into the box and came up with NOTHING. Do you have any idea what this means? I have no coke. NOOOOO COOOOOOKE. And no car. And a husband who won't be home until two in the morning.

Wait a minute, let me just check something...

I have wine! All is not lost!

Happy Weekend everyone. I will not be posting on Monday, so come back and see me on Wednesday!


  1. I love reading your blog! You crack me up! I wish we lived closer to each other. I hope your day goes well without the Coke! :-)

  2. Coke on the way as soon as you call...and margaritas!! Love you, and yes you crack me up as always!

  3. I can't make it through the day without Coke. Luckily, my son-in-law drinks it and lives upstairs. When I run out I just steal one of his.

  4. Ha, Beth you are great! Sure hope you car is easily fixed! And you get your coke. I'm that way about coffee in the am.

  5. We do get used to our treats! I get really stressed if I run out of Chai tea :)

  6. Heehee. I hope you're having a great long weekend and get that car thing worked out.
