An entry not at all related to being vegan

I rarely post anything here that is unrelated to veganism, but I thought you might be amused by my misfortune this morning. And, if the F-word upsets you, stop reading now.

I woke up this morning and it was pouring rain. It was really coming down. So, when I left the house I grabbed an unbrella in addition to my raincoat and opened the umbrella just to get to my car (about 15 feet from the door) - that's how hard it was raining. I get to the car (the nice Audi, btw) and sit down in the front seat and close the umbrella and my seat was wet. I said to myself, "What the fuck?" And then I was even more confused by the fact that I was in my car and was still getting rained on. I looked up and realized that I left the sunroof open overnight. Then my brain said "Oh fuck" and a second later as comprehension really set in, "OH FUCK". I'm not just cursing for your benefit, this really is what my brain said. I turned on the car and closed the sunroof and then went back into the house for an armload of towels. I dried off the inside, but the ceiling was so wet that it continued to drip on me the whole time I was driving. I think I managed to get most of the liquid out of the seats (and the 1" puddle in my armrest console) and out of the ceiling by the time I got to work. I guess the windows will have to sit open all day Saturday to dry it out. Luckily my iPod was spared from the wetness.

Did I mention that I am trying to trade this car in next week?? I hope I don't have watermarks on the ceiling.


  1. d'oh. That sucks! It'll probably dry out, and by the time it stinks, it'll be someone else's car. hehehe.

  2. That's my hope. I'm thinking of selling on Monday just to get rid of it before any damp smells set in. :)
