today i texted sean because i had a huge emergency. someone at work came downstairs and told me that chuck had a flat tire. ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME? no. he was not. sean was at school in a very important math class. so of course i texted him immediately. i almost texted him 911 but i thought he might get more worried than he should be.
chloe: sean. my tire is flat. a lot. kinda. should i risk driving it?
sean calls me right away because he is way too good for me.
sean: "chloe, is everything okay? are you on the road? where are you?"
chloe: "no. i'm just at work in the basement."
sean: "okay, well is your tire completely flat? how flat is it?"
chloe: "i don't know. i already told you. it is flat. a lot. kinda."
sean: "have you even looked at it yet?"
chloe: "what do you mean by look? if you mean have i actually seen it with my own eyes? then no. but if you mean that someone told me it was flat? then yes, yes i did look.
sean : "well, you probably need to fill it with air."
chloe: "um. what."
sean: "you need to fill it up with air."
chloe: "um, i think i'm just going to drive it. i'm sure i'll be fine."
sean: "chloe, how flat is it?"
chloe: "sean. i told you already. it is flat a lot kinda. i feel like saying a lot is too much. so i added kinda because it kinda means it is a little less than a lot. ya know?"
sean: "oh gol. what have i gotten myself into."
chloe: "k, well i think i'm just gonna risk it. it's not blown up yet or anything."
sean: "just drive to the gas station, fill it with air."
chloe: "um. remember how the other day we saw that they charge $.50 to use the air hose? that is asinine." (my dad always says that word and i feel so smart using it)
sean: "just do it chloe. it is $.50."
chloe: "see..this is EVERYTHING that is wrong with America. now i have to start paying for something that i can create on my own. screw that. this is ridiculous. i will not surrender to this stupid economic inflation bologna. i will not. the world is falling apart because people are to scared too do anything about it and they just fall into these stupid money traps. if i pay $.50 for air then you might as well charge me for doing my laundry or something and that would be very expensive because you do it a lot. so no. i will not fill up my tire with air that costs money. because last i checked air just freaking existed. that is pure robbery."
sean: "chloe. do you need $.50?"
chloe: "yes. yes i do. i only have a dollar and i don't wanna make change. and i don't want to pay for air because it is ridiculous."
sean: "chloe, i have to go. my class is starting."
chloe: "k bye. if i don't see you later it is probably because my tire blew up and i got stranded and then kidnapped or because when i try to make change at the gas station and i get robbed and then held hostage, it is because of this stupid tire. just so you know. i have a bad feeling about this. oh and i have decided that i know what i wanna be when i grow up. i wanna sell air to people. because it's like a 100% profit! love ya. bye."
okay, some of this may not have been exactly what sean said but i know that he meant it. thank goodness for maddie and lee. maddie gave me the money and lee followed me to the gas station. turns out? i have a tire gauge in my car. had no idea. never used it. lee helped me fill the tire with air. everything turned out okay. i feel like such a grown up now. i took care of my own problem! all by myself! if you don't count lee pretty much doing all of it and maddie paying for it and sean who tried to help over the phone. it's been a monumental day.
anyway, i came home and did dishes. this is what happens.
then i made sean dinner and he isn't even home yet.
then i wanted to watch Elf but sean's x box was hooked up
and i couldn't get the dvd player to work because i mostly
just didn't want to get up off of the couch.
so i almost texted him 911 but then didn't want him to think i was
crazy or helpless or anything like that.
*edited to add: sean got home and we got in a little tizzy about the whole car thing and i told him "when we got engaged i told you that i would marry you if you took care of my car." he adds, "so you married your mechanic?" and i said "no, he was already taken." then he said everything would be okay if he could play golf on x box but i was watching Elf. then i was the bigger person and said that he could play golf because i have seen Elf 2600 times. he said "oh, really? 2600 times?" then he stole my calculator that is really just an itouch and tried to be all smart but mostly just came off annoying and show-offy and said "that would have taken you 163.375 days to watch that." then he just added that it was really "162.375" and i was like whatever you are lame. then he said it would take me 5 months. then i was like well you were supposed to make my car perfect and he said "well maybe i should start charging you to fix it" and i was like " maybe i should start charging you for........ me being awesome" then the conversation was over.
