the person and I talked a little bit about stuff and it was nice. It is a shame that it couldn't be more but they are definitely crushing too. While being realistic. It's not the worst feeling. Gives me hope for my future. I am rememberin I have qualities of my very own. It is good. If a little sad.

Window shopping can be more fun than the real thing, and infinitely more sensible. Enjoy what you have, seems like your head is on the right way

Yesterday I went to visit an old roommate and his wife, about 70 miles down US 1 near Conowingo Dam. Coming back I stopped at the light a mile from here at the five points. When I started across the intersection an Aston cop lights up behind me, so naturally I pull over and shut it off, wondering what his problem was. He walks up to me and says you're dragging your battery.

Sure enough the fucking battery is holding on by just the positive cable, the battery had half worn away, and my truck had been running on the alternator. If he hadn't stopped me I would have made it home, but of course I couldn't start it with no battery so he called a tow truck. We couldn't put it on the truck because I can't get the shift lever out of park without the key on and the my foot on the brake pedal. It's an antitheft feature.

So the cop went to the station and brought back a jump box. With that I got it started, put the top up as it was starting to sprinkle, and drove it home.
But it still cost me $150 just to have the truck show up. Raining this morning so I haven't crawled under there to see what happened.

Guess what happened? Quality time and I do mean quality. Lots of conversation and other more intimate happenings. A lot of honesty and sincerity and also laughs. What a great night, fireworks was the correct call.

Couldn't they have sent a truck capable of 'a full suspended lift'?

You'd think the tow truck operator would carry a jump box to enable unlocking the shift lever on vehicles like yours.

Or wheel dollies, or jumper cables. Duh.
