waiting for the tow truck

yup, that's right. I'm waiting for the nice towing people to come and pick up my car and bring it to the mechanic. this sucks donkey balls.

yesterday i was having such a good day! and then i got out of rehearsal and my car wouldn't start. it turned the key and it made no sound at all! So i went back downstairs and vicky (the woman in the show) came upstairs with me. Then this really nice guy let me use his cell-phone and so i called Swan because Aerith is in Hartford until tonight so i couldn't get in touch with him. Swan came and tried to jump the car (but the battery is fine) and then called a friend and tried to see if he could find out what was wrong. he couldn't. so then vicky called AAA and they sent a tow truck. Then i got in touch with Aerith which is good because it made me feel better. Then the tow man finally came, but he couldn't get the tow truck into the parking garage. Luckly i had parked on the out ramp, so my car was facing downhill. Swan and the tow man were able to push it back from the spot and get it out of the garage. ***

(tow truck just came, got the car, and brought it to the mechanic)

*** Then the tow man hit the starter with a hammer and the car actually started! So i drove the car home.

But this morning when i tried to start it myself it wouldn't start, even when i tried the hammer trick. So I had to call a tow place and a different tow man came and he towed my car to the mechanic. of course now i know that i should have just driven the car straight to the mechanic and had Swan drive me home. It would have saved me a lot of hassle this morning. oh well. hindsight is 20/20 or something like that. at least i should have the car back by the afternoon.
