I Was An Adventure

I know you’ll find this difficult to believe but I misbehaved when I was out and about yesterday. I didn’t mean to. Really I didn’t. But sometimes an innocent comment is enough to get me started and one thing leads to another and before I know it I’ve become visible again without intending to. I’ve found once that happens its best to go with it.

I took Howie for an oil change. Yep, that’s it. Simple, right? How can that possibly cause a stir, right? Well, if you know me, then you don’t have to ask those questions. By now you’re shaking your head, wondering what the hell I did this time.

Nothing earth shattering, I assure you. I didn’t slip up that much. Not yesterday anyway though that possibility is back out there now, due to circumstances I have no desire to control. Ah, but that’s for another day. Back to Howie. He actually started it. Pretty cool, having a car that misbehaves too. It’s guaranteed that the people at the oil place are going to remember us next time we’re in. And my specific counterman, well let’s just say I left him with a smile and a sense of wonderment that I have absolutely no doubt he took home to share after his shift yesterday.

Now tell me, were you an adventure yesterday too, as I asked you to be?

Gee, its always pretty dull and boring when I get my car's oil changed. I'll have to go with you next time.

Yeah, I'm with Sandra. Ordinarily that's a pretty boring chore! Being an adventure is a GOOD thing.

Nope. Maybe I'll be an adventure tomorrow. Yesterday I slept. On the other hand... tomorrow its supposed to rain again so maybe I'll sleep tomorrow, too.
