Waiting

Today I had an appointment at 1:00 to get the car serviced. And to check that pesky tire that keeps going flat. Since Brandon told me yesterday, don't worry you have AAA; I decided it was time to fix the tire instead of keeping our fingers crossed that I won't get a flat while out and about.

When I checked in for the appointment the service man asked if I would like a rental car.  I didn't even know that was possible. No thanks, I replied. He looked at me for a second and then asked if I planned to wait for the full 2 hours.  As I nodded, he pointed to the client lounge and told me to help myself to books, magazines, and free Wi-Fi.


Perfect.

So here I sit with my iced mocha, Adele on Pandora, my laptop open and no kids. It is almost like a mini-vacation.  Mr. Service Man, I realize that turning down a car to sit in your lobby for 2 hours seems C-R-A-Z-Y, but you have no idea what I left at home.



This is the best part of my day.
