That was tiresome. [Aug. 21st, 2007|03:49 pm]

Flat front left tire on the Long Beach Freeway in the beautiful city of Commerce this morning. Inconvenience; grime; noise; moderate danger; expense. Saving graces:

* The useful and free Freeway Service Patrol tow people, who rather than just taking me off the freeway so I could change my tire safely, changed the tire for me with high powered tools in about 90 seconds.

* Modern cars, which can take a front left tire blowout at highway seed without becoming the Grim Reaper's Whirling Gondolas to Hell.

* Working spare.

The last time I got a blowout at highway speed, the main thing that I noticed was that the car sounded funny. And as I sat on the side of the freeway awaiting triple A, I too said a little thank you to the modern technology that allows for such things without troubling Mr. Reaper. Also, let's hear it for cell phones and never even having to emerge from your car to get someone out to help you.

These highway seeds do not work as advertised and I want my family's cow back.
