What a day. This is the first time I have ever written two entries in one day, but this one is worth it. To anyone who does read this, if you have time, comment. I feel like I am talking to myself on this thing, and that gets kind of boring after a while. I may stop updating if no one reads…ya know? I like everyone who reads this!!!
The transmission in the car went out today. And by went out I mean it literally fell out. We were riding along pretty as you please when suddenly teh car started to slip out of gear. It kept going back and forth between split seconds of drive and neutral. My dad makes the stunning observation of, “Hm, I think something might be wrong with the car.” Well, we plod along for a bit more when all of the sudden there is a loud, “!!!!BAM!!!!!” Proceeded by a very intense scrapping noise. We finally get to a point where we can pull over and see what’s wrong. Dad looks under the car and still can’t figure out. While he is going to talk to the owner of the driveway that we just pulled into, informing them that the car will be towed in the short-term, I decide to take a peek under the car. When I open my door, I lean down to look under it. All I see is a flood of transmission fluid covering the undercarriage of the car, so I’m like, “Um, okay.” Well, my dad comes back and says he can’t reach anyone, so we begin to walk to Woodland which is about 100 ft or so from where we stopped. As we start walking, my dad kicks something out of the way. I was like,”wasn’t that part of the transmission?” SO..we get to Woodland, take care of the intended mission for the trip, and wait on my brother to get out of school and for the tow truck to arrive.
Presently, the car is sitting happy as a clam in the driveway, with it’s transmission’s guts layed out underneath it. It was incredibly humorous…even my dad laughed, and he wasn’t happy. Everyone that has asked has been like, “no really, what exactly happened to the transmission?” My reply: It said, “fuck it, I gotta go, can’t take it anymore.”
