What I've Been Reading Instead of Cleaning My House

Stupid Car!

The good news -- my right blinker miraculously healed itself and is working again.

The bad news -- now my driver side window is stuck permanently down (just in time for winter!).

I'm not friendly, I'm just lazy

The right turn signal on my car isn't working.

(If my father is reading this, I mean my "right turning indicator." As he likes to say, "ANYTHING can be a signal, so be more specific!")

I know that on this model of car this happens a lot, so I'm too lazy to get it fixed. Instead, I'm going "old school" and using hand signals. Luckily, Nigel had a driver's handbook in the house because I couldn't remember which way to hold my arm (obviously, I don't ride bikes much).

So now I'm driving down the street sticking my arm out the window (luckily it's summer) before I make a turn and everyone thinks I'm waving at them. They either wave back or give me a weird look like, "I don't know you, how dare you wave at me!"

It's gotten so bad that the other day the man in the car ahead of me was signalling for me to go around him. I just sat there. Nigel finally had to poke me and tell me to go around. I thought he was signalling for a right turn, too!
