Internet, meet the driver’s side shock/strut on Chefboy’s car….or what’s left of it.
Yesterday morning the boy’s car was leaking gas from the new fuel filter he replaced Sunday, so he asked to use my vehicle.
I tossed him my keys, and called dad my mechanic to see if he could come fix The Beast.
I mean, I had plans.
Plans that needed not to be frustrated.
I needed to go to the store to get milk for today’s TWD recipe that Sheri of Whisk: a food blog picked out for us today.
It has a lovely custard base, which I was going to make ice cream with, and meringues which I was going to make cookies with, and a caramel drizzle thingie that I was going to do wild and crazy things too.
The car HAD to be fixed.
Daddy My mechanic came.
The car was fixed.
He then told me that if this shock/strut rusted through completely, whomever was driving would most likely end up in the ditch.
I’ve already met Mr. Ditch on several occasions, and decided it wasn’t necessary to meet him again.
So for the first time since July 1st, I have no TWD.
I feel like such a slacker, but at least I didn’t wreck another car.
That’s gotta count for something.
****Update~~It is 9:32 am. The boy just called and it broke. Thank God he is fine.
If you would like to make this gorgeous looking dessert, please go check out Sheri’s blog. She has the recipe, and I’m sure some really gorgeous pictures too.
